Crossed Borders

For this piece ERRE staged the basic elements of a classroom, including a blackboard and desks. On the blackboard, words are arranged in the form of a crossword puzzle, intersecting while remaining separate. Five erasers—inscribed with the words love, education, liberty, justice and dignity — suggest the means for eliminating ideological barriers between the words and concepts. The desks invite users to insert themselves into the installation and the educational system it represents.
