BIO

Adam Moore is a British-St. Lucian artist from east London working at the intersectional discourses and embodied explorations of sustainability. He creates artworks across ceramics, dance, drawing, film, painting, sculpture, sound and text, often culminating in transdisciplinary installations and performance. Applying embodied and transdisciplinary processes to post-studio and socially engaged contexts he examines emergent forms and their potential to amplify and transcend meaning.

Dancing is basic to his work, predating and permeating his formal education in contemporary, somatic and improvisational dance practices. 

He limns poetics and theories of sustainability through his artworks, exhibitions, collaborations, interventions and performances, synthesising fragmented dimensions of life to find new ways of living that soften hardened institutions, stewarding life to thrive. His work with diverse groups across human rights, arts and culture non-profit and social wellbeing informs his approach to art making, collaboration and sustainability.1

A CONSTELLATIONS 2020-21 artist supported by UP Projects and Flat Time House to develop collaborative and socially engaged practice, Adam has established collaborations with a range of international socially engaged creative networks innovating across events and interventions in the public realm, heritage sites, digital platforms and print publications including the current Theatrum Mundi Edition Encounters (2022), forthcoming Diaspore Projects’ A Love Affair series, Daniel Lie and Jupiter Artland’s Rotten TV  (2021-22), The Hildegard Von Bingen Society for Gardening Companions (2021-), and Takeaway (2022), founding the reading and spatial practice collective Readings & Rituals (2022).

Adam 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. Committed to decolonial, open and non-hierarchical pedagogy he uses accessible resources and decentring practices to support learning, sharing his teaching practices with the goal of improving education and creative development at the institutional, professional, and individual level. Adam invites people into his teaching processes to participate in the co-creation of knowledge where we learn from and actively teach each other using our skills and experiences.

He has facilitated placemaking workshops for the inaugural Theatrum-Mundi Cohort programme in London and NN Contemporary Art in Northampton, and teaches 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 & REGENT STREET), 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. I apply choreographic, embodied and sociopolitical processes for dancing 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.
