Game is defined as adopting goals, rules, challenges and interactions but as the philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein claims, games can be a misconstrued meaning of language and the mind.

Because we misunderstand language we use indirect communication, thought experiments and mind games to get a sense of one-upmanship to empower or demoralize. What extremes can we go to for feeling recognition, wanting, acceptance and achievement?

Featured artists explore the work ethic of game playing considering tactics, strategy and philosophical investigations as well as aesthetic work which deals with layout, intrigue and an appeal to take part. The exhibition includes, video, film, photography, installation, interventions, painting and drawing.

My work deals with aspects of school pupil unsettlement in and around the London area. It concentrates specifically on collecting evidence concerning resistant behaviours. I have worked as a teacher in many different schools where I began collecting confiscated objects, this in turn lead me on to collect large vandalized school objects/furniture. More recently I have taken a large collection of landscape photographs in and around school settings evidencing acts of pupil sabotage. I am chiefly interested in adolescence as a juncture point were creative play can merge into acts of defiance.
