A.L. Steiner GREATEST HITS & Phoebe Collings-James JUST ENOUGH VIOLENCE
Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Exhibition Runs 17th January – 13th February, Thursday-Saturday 12-5pm. 2016

ARCADIA MISSA, LONDON

For Condo A.L. Steiner and Phoebe Collings-James, Arcadia Missa and Deborah Schamoni, will be presenting together new series of works within a one-room installation. Both artists create disparate narratives through the loose autobiographical storytelling that informs their research and practice. Steiner much more directly uses photography to string together sets of relations and moments, whereas Collings-James has been thinking about the terms ‘Can I Live?’ and ‘Just Enough Violence For The Whole Family’ that have come into her life through recent personal situations whilst making new work.

Where Steiner uses a camera lens to not only present the self but also generate conversations around visibility, Collings-James has been using painting (and specifically the painting of animals, the insertion of language) to attend to the representation of gendered and racialised bodies, without the direct documentation or representation of these bodies. At the occasion of Condo, hosted by Arcadia Missa gallery, Steiner will present a site-specific installation entitled Greatest Hits”.

Collings-James is a London born artist who has recently spent periods of time in the US (where she encountered the phrase ‘Can I Live?’), Steiner’s (US based) new video pieces for this exhibition are a nod or a throwback to her days spent in the UK.
This is not a collaboration, but the two galleries have an ongoing friendship and are excited for this duo exhibition to develop further through the exchange that unfolds during the installation period and the collation of two series of different work, work that yet still crosses over in unlikely ways.
