New Noveta

CEALDWIELLLA

7th – 28th May 2018

Thrust into hidding recordings
Always tracing cracks, the well just breathing, cascades
The women, inhaled mud, trickles, powdered blue
Endless mudflats
Programmed to circle, pause, slam.
Breathing out
Pores and fibre flood, drain.

For the inaugural exhibition in the gallery’s Soho location, Arcadia Missa presents Cealdwiellla, an exhibition by New Noveta, including sound, costumes and props from their eponymous performance. The performance took place, in collaboration with Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, at Arcadia Missa, Peckham on the 5th of April. The sound piece includes recordings from the performance and a transmission from Runwell, Essex which was broadcast live on the Arcadia Missa website at the time of the performance.

Costume design by Gabriella Massey of Atelier Bâba
Mixing and live transmission by Vindicatrix
