Phoebe Collings-James @ Arcadia Missa

4 May 2018 - 31 May 2018

Relative Strength, is a site specific installation of video and ceramic works by Phoebe Collings­-James. The installation presents objects as if suspended in motion, or repurposed outside their standard material form. Some of the objects hold water, others soil, plastic or cacti, listening to the cycle of degradation. Collings-James’ strategy of display is akin to that of her making: considering objects outside of western philosophical assumptions and hierarchies regarding subject and object. The treatment of materials and the nod to the works as in flux allows the objects to be more than just surveilled, it is an attempt to enable them to be disruptive. It is this tension in Collings­-James’ thoughtful practice of assemblage that aims to disrupt and entangle any fixed ideas of representation.
