Adam Moore is an English-St. Lucian artist based in London. He uses movement, text, film, and sculptural, spatial forms to design environments for performance, exploring themes of multiculturalism, unity, and resilience, within the spacious trajectory of blackness.
Current work includes his Long Play Liberation Series commissioned by Newham London for Newham’s Black History Month 2020; ongoing collaborative performance project A&E with founding member of Earwax, Esme Lewis-Gartside; writing for dance art journal; and developing his collaborative and socially engaged practice as part of CONSTELLATIONS with UP Projects and Flat Time House. Adam is a 2020 Jerwood Bursary Artist, currently engaged in an independent, artist-led, peer supported research project, Bright Dynasty.
Adam explores how embodied transdisciplinary practice amplifies and transcends meaning, entailing a deeper integration and synthesis across making, performance and research.
Adam limns poetics and theories of sustainability through his practice, inviting others into new ways of perceiving and connecting, with themselves and others, and their physical and digital environments, through performance and artistic collaboration. For Adam, sustainability is a life-cycle of trial and improvement, enquiring multitudinous exchanges across fragmented dimensions. Sustainability explores how these exchanges erode hardened institutions and attitudes, revealing alternative visions, multiple futures, and new ways for life to thrive.
