antonym / synonym | The Window, Cambridge, UK
- type art
Antonym/Synonym (Mirror tape, 2019) was exhibited at the Window, Silver Street, Cambridge. Curated by ALL: Art Language and Location, this piece dealt with binary oppositions and how often they are not as far apart as it seems. Antonym/Synonym consisted of a mirror tape installation with printed/laser cut words on two sides, both the mirror face and the backing paper one. Synonyms of the word Window are printed on the front, whilst antonyms are inverted as though being seen in a mirror. The suggestion behind it is that each word is often closely followed by its exact opposite meaning. Each opening leads to an end, each beginning to a closure, in continuous repetition.
