Set in the atmospheric Crypt Gallery on Euston Road, A Raid On The Inarticulate is a contemplation of war and its consequences, timed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Anna Brownsted, Susie Johnson, Idit Elia Nathan, Nir Olon, Caroline Wendling, Sarah Wood and Rachel Wooller present site responsive work, exploring the influential shadows of war and conflict.
