Exhibition Runs 3rd – 31st October 2015
Arcadia Missa is excited to present our first solo exhibition by artist Hannah Black. The exhibition will bring together aspects of the artist’s video practice with new installation work, guided by her attempts to think about a politics that doesn’t rely on the structure of analogy.
Contemporary black critiques of political transposition and cultural appropriation block an easy, white-centred reliance on analogy and problematise coalition and solidarity. The empty slur “identity politics” ignores that this is also a politics of disidentification, of a maddening, exhilarating pressure on language and representation. Of course the violent unity of the capitalist world is real, so this politics against language is also a politics for the radical mutation of language.
