There is a narrative in Supply that can be approached from various angles. It might begin on a lovely Sunday morning in Warsaw seventy-seven years ago. It might also begin at Gunnuhver in Reykjanes, or in the DDR in Germany, on a lime farm in Mexico, an IKEA store somewhere in the world, or in the centre of Reykjavik; three hundred years ago, forty years ago, or right now. Perhaps we’ll trace a thread in a crocheted mould around casts, to a telephone and fake nails; or we travel from micromovements of the body and the Earth to touching and forming, a thing, a home, a story, a work. In a single exhibition of eight artists lie many threads and even more stories. However, we who create it stand and whatever our angle is, it is the audience who in the end tie it all together.

In Supply we focus on the reserves of knowledge, skill, and methods that are accumulated and constantly replenished through artists’ research and innovation; with practice, repetition, consideration, by making mistakes, and re-examining; collaboration and coordination with others. The supply is both individual and collective and it is sort of synonymous with perseverance.

In their works, the artists use mixed techniques and media, such as painting, book work, 3D printing, ceramic, acoustic images, telephones, rope and tar, photocopying, kinetics and choreography, IKEA units, tree branches and flags
