Adam Chodzko is an artist working across media, exploring our conscious and unconscious behaviours, social relations and collective imaginations through artworks created as speculative forms of ‘social media.’ Exhibiting his work nationally and internationally since 1991 Chodzko’s practice asks ‘what might we be becoming?’ by examining ways in which the visual might enhance our perception in order to create better connections with others.
His artworks includes 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 together then what, really, should happen to us next?
Chodzko’s exhibitions range from a solo survey show at Tate St Ives to major installations at Tate Britain, MAMBo and Raven Row and commissions range from Creative Time, NY to the Wellcome Trust. He has had work in the Venice, Istanbul, Athens, Whitstable and Folkestone Bienniales/Trienniales and has received awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York, the AHRC, and in 2015 was shortlisted for the Jarman Award. Until 2018, Chodzko was Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Kent. He lives in Whitstable, Kent.
