BIO

Adam Moore is a British-St. Lucian artist from east London exploring themes of multiculturalism, unity and resilience at the intersectional discourses and embodied explorations of sustainability.

Applying embodied processes across various mediums and contexts, he investigates emergent transdisciplinary forms and their potential to amplify and transcend meaning. His works across ceramics, dance, film, painting, sculpture, sound and text explore how transdisciplinary practice entails a deeper understanding and synthesis of experience.

His work with diverse groups across human rights, arts and culture non-profit and social wellbeing informs his approach to sustainability, collaboration and art making.1 He sees sustainability as a spiralling synthesis of fragmented dimensions of life, softening hardened institutions, stewarding life to thrive.

He is part of international networks innovating across collaborative digital platforms and print, including Theatrum Mundi and Diaspore Projects’ A Love Affair series, Daniel Lie and Jupiter Artland’s Rotten TV, The Hildegard Von Bingen Society for Gardening Companions, and Takeaway. He co-designed and facilitated the syllabus for Camden Art Centre’s 2021-22 Youth Collective Transformative Futures programme with artist Madeline Pledge, and resumes this role with artist Becky Lyon for the gallery’s 2022-23 programme. He has facilitated workshops for the inaugural Theatrum-Mundi Cohort programme, and Professional Morning Class at Independent Dance.

Recent awards and residencies include the a-n 2022 Time Space Money Bursary and the Jerwood UNITe 2022 artist studio residency at g39, Cardiff. In 2022 the first large-scale institutional solo presentation of his ongoing exhibition and performance series Bright Dynasty was presented by Phoenix Art Space, Brighton. A Trinity Laban Leverhulme Performing Arts Scholar with an MFA in Dance Creative Practice, he is associate Lecturer for Contemporary Performance Practice: Experimental Arts and Performance at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His work has been commissioned, exhibited and produced with support from Arts Council England, g39, Cardiff, Jerwood Arts, a-n The Artists Information Company, Hypha Studios & London Borough of Waltham Forest, Theatrum-Mundi, Jupiter Artland, Performance @ Kings (Kings College London), Camden Art Centre, Kunstraum, London, Ingestre Orangery, Newham London, UP Projects & Flat Time House, Guest Projects, The Yard, Hackney Wick, Haarlem Artspace, RAW Lab (Bow Arts) and more.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a transdisciplinary artist who dances and works with dance. Creating nourishing conditions for encountering dancing, I design, build, and choreograph performance installations, applying choreographic, embodied and sociopolitical processes for dance making to my works in ceramics, drawing, film, painting, sculpture, sound and text. Dancing with people, life forms, materials and structures in the places I live and the spaces I move through, I heal open the closures between fragmented dimensions of reality touching us and our world deeply. Synthesising material, sensory and spiritual dimensions of the self with the world and with others, I examine different ways of living that soften hardened institutions, stewarding life to thrive.
