Currently in residence at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, Adam Knight gives a talk about his practice, and the project he is currently devising for Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s TANK space.
Taking apart the formats of artistic production, Adam addresses complexities inherent in art-making. He is interested in pursuing and interrogating moments of a-synchronicity, doubt and self-critique. Starting points often involve researching personal histories alongside specific art, film, architectural and literary references. These may manifest into film, sound, text, sculpture or photography. Works directly inform one another and contribute to a broader practice-led exploration of presentation and association.
Born in Bedford, UK (1982), Adam received his BA Hons in Fine Art at the Kent Institute of Art and Design, 2005 and an MA in Fine art at the Royal College of Art, 2007. In 2010 he participated in the ARTSCHOOL/UK project, beginning at Cell Project Space and culminating at the Whitechapel Gallery. In late 2011 he was awarded the International Fellowship 4-month residency at the ACC Galerie in Weimar, Germany. Further to this in 2013 he completed a 2-month residency at the OG-9 Rotationatelier in Zurich, supported by the Index writing group. In September Adam will commence a League Residency at Vytlacil, Sparkill NY and upon his return will start his PhD at Royal College of Art.
