The concept of the assemblage has enjoyed a flat appreciation within the art historical canon – one that focuses
on a linear progression from the format of the readymade, to a debunking of traditional notions of authorship.
The act of recovering material does – to an extent – undermine grand narratives of the creator-author. For many
the individual is a myth, a premise invented through and for the insufficiencies of consumerism. The personal is
historical, and instead we find ourselves met in many moments with an inability to escape plurality.
To look at the past calls into view a question asked by Denise Riley: How do we know the past is over?
In burrowing out of the past – through reconstituted language, found imagery, novel processes – we assert this
question. The material realities of history underscore the past as existing still now, in particular through the
formation of place and identity.
A suspicion around nostalgia is healthy; nostalgia is predicated on identification with the image of a past that
never was. Nostalgia is a corrupted past.
How much can we trust recollections, nostalgia in its artificial protectant, and the power of former narratives in
conjuring our present and ourselves? The weaving of new constellations of meaning is what we can trace
through the works – from a starting point of confusion that we understand as memory.

Arcadia Missa and Supplement present a joint exhibition at 255 Canal Street, with work by Amalia Ulman, Gaby Sahhar (AM) and Gabriella Boyd, Philomene Pirecki, (SUP).

Land use planning. Area Zoning. So many students have romantic notions of psychogeography. Cities and walls are built by men. The walkie talkie burnt the car parked on the side of the street, no one ever checked the architect’s CV. Occupying space and owning space are different things, and the space that you exist in is always both psychic and material. Has anyone ever asked you to have some perspective?

Following this group show Arcadia Missa & Supplement will be in the space alternately, running individual programmes.
