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.

The work of art aims to address the theme in an overt and deliberate manner. The theme of violence against women is addressed directly with a view to generating a social critique of the issue.  

Through interactive engagement leading to the transformation of a drawing into sculpture, the piece shifts into a substantively different level of interpretation. This new level reflects the social position of women and illustrates the traditional roles in which they are placed. 

The audience would then reflect on the extent to which there is a connection between traditional gender roles and violence.
