Selector's talk with Adam Chodzko

At 3pm on Sunday 19 April Adam Chodzko will lead a walk through the exhibition, discussing the themes of the exhibition – “embodiment, dysfunction, geography and time, displacement and mutation” - and how these emerged during the selection process.

No booking necessary, no entry fee. 

Please note that the exhibition will remain open to visitors during the talk. 

Adam Chodzko is an artist - exhibiting work nationally and internationally since 1991 - whose multidisciplinary practice explores the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour.

His artworks include video, installation, photography, socially engaged practices, drawing and performance. Bringing together fragments from diverse fields of knowledge to make work that sits between documentary and fiction, his artworks are propositions driven by the question; if this is our current reality what really should happen to us next?

Chodzko’s exhibitions range from a solo survey show at Tate St Ives to a major installation at Tate Britain. He has had work in the Venice and Istanbul Biennials and has received awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York.
