Adam Gillam’s structures seem to oscillate almost weightlessly, between the poles of logic and intuition, finding their form in those unstable spaces where sense is about to be made or unmade: “They function much as songs or stories: read aloud in a space that was formerly empty, creating something out of nothing” (Melissa Gronlund, 2007). The scatty pragmatics and spontaneous sleights of improvisation or performance are settled in these pieces like makeshift thoughts, provisional agreements presented as both subject and working material.

Adam Gillam was born in 1970 and studied Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University and the Royal Academy of Arts, graduating in 1997. He lives and works in London.
