The Window at Silver Street

Silver Street 900w
After much planning and behind-the-scenes activity, we are delighted to announce the launch of The Window at Silver Street, a new pop-up art space for contemporary and experimental art in Cambridge.

The Window at Silver Street, part of the office front of Cambridge University Department of Land Economy, is Cambridge’s newest (and smallest!) venue for art and will host an ongoing series of artworks curated by Art Language Location.

Nerma Cridge Synonym/Antonym

“My piece entitled Synonym/Antonym consists 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.”

Please note:
Viewing is from the street only, and there is room for one visitor at a time to pause in front of the window away from the pavement. Enjoy!
