idiom proof alludes to the English idiom "The elephant in the room", meaning a truth or question that very obviously should be discussed openly, but which is ignored for the convenience of one or more involved parties.

The work raised issues relating to the expectations and challenges of creative practice and it's relationship to regeneration.
