Adam Chodzko is an artist based in Whitstable, Kent, UK, exploring human behaviour. He works across media, ranging from large-scale installations to de-materialised interventions. Using a form of science fiction, exploring the space between documentary and fantasy, conceptualism and surrealism, public and private, Chodzko’s work provokes our collective imagination by wondering how, through the visual, we might best understand and re-form our encounters with the society and environment that surrounds us.
Since 1990 Chodzko has been exhibited extensively in international solo and group exhibitions including: Tate Britain, Tate St. Ives; Museo d’Arte Moderna, Bologna (MAMBo); Istanbul Biennale; and Venice Biennale. He is recipient of awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts, DACS Art360, and in 2015 was shortlisted for the Jarman Award.
Adam Chodzko was co-commissioned by Invisible Dust and Great North Run Culture to create ‘Rising’ a surround sound and performance piece about flooding at the British Science Festival in Newcastle in 2013. Chodzko was part of our project ‘Invisible Heat’. Rising was subsequently performed at the National Maritime Museum, London, the University of Hull and the Beppu Triennial, Japan.
Adam Chodzko film ‘Deep Above’, commissioned by Invisible Dust and advised by Dr. Adam Harris was first shown at Watershed, Bristol (2016) before touring to Manchester, Shambala Festival, The Wellcome Trust, University of Kent, Groundwork: Helston etc.
