Adam Gillam : In Constant Use
May 22 - Jun 20 2020 - 26 days left
The title refers to the space in which Adam Gillam currently works – a garage awaiting conversion to a studio, and to his working methods. Change, evolution, and cannibalization are key to his practice. Gillam has a passion for playful bricolage, imposing witty transformations on found materials. Gillam adopts an improvised and what he terms a ‘fidgety’ approach to making. Found materials, discarded matter, drawings, notes and phrases are layered into wall-based pieces. This is particularly evident in the new photographic works presented in In Constant Use.
