“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.” – Jean-Jacques Rousseau -1762

CONTEXT is a collection of works from Teesside based artist DYAD. The exhibition include works produced during lockdown and new works created specifically for MAW. These collected works seek to explore the use of language in the construction of our societal boundaries. The look both backwards and forwards in an attempt to make sense of our current position. Incorporating text as a visual language these pieces represent a standpoint on the ideological mechanics that steer us as we navigate a once in a century global event.

“It is possible to exaggerate the scale of this revolution, or its likely longevity”

– Danny Kruger MP – 2020
