Beyond the Borders exhibition at the Crypt Gallery in Kings Cross looks at the subjective meanings of borders, territories and identity. Tucked away in plain sight in a crypt in Euston, the space feels immersive. Rugged, moist and cold, the environment reflects the themes of the artwork. We are not in a conventional white box, but you have to step outside of your comfort zone to experience what it is like to take an active role in building a society, but being placed outside of it. The artworks are more than an individual creation housed in a gallery, they are part of a network that seeks to provoke social change.
