Linda Stupart @ Arcadia Missa, Feb 26 – Mar 8

, 25 February 2016

Linda Stupart is opening solo exhibition A dead writer exists in words and language is a type of virus. at London’s Arcadia Missa, opening February 26 and running to March 8.

The show accompanies and expands on the London-based artist and writer’s novella Virus, also published by Arcadia Missa, and follows the Stupart’s concerns with gender, language mutation and abjection in a “virulent and embodied critique of sexism and structural violence in art and artworlds.”

The exhibition announcement runs along a text that vividly evokes bodily analogies for exclusionary discourse and dominant historical narratives: “The same words again and again wearing out their throat their blood their muscles knotting, stomach filled with black oil, fingers tapping on the seat of every lecture theatre.”

See the Arcadia Missa website for details.**
