Adam Chodzko is an artist whose multidisciplinary practice explores the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour in the gap between how we are and how we could be. Exhibiting work nationally and internationally since 1991, working across media, from video installation to subtle interventions, and with a practice that is partly sited within the gallery space and partly within the wider public realm, Chodzko's work explores our collective imagination in order to suggest how, through the visual, we might best connect with others. His artworks invent new relationships between our value and belief systems, examining their affect on our communal and private spaces often by using existing documents and fictions that control, describe and guide these systems and spaces. Chodzko's practice operates between documentary and fantasy, (often using a form of "science fiction", in order that art might propose alternative realities), conceptualism and surrealism and public and private space, often engaging reflexively and directly with the role of the viewer.
Since 1991, he has exhibited at numerous venues around the world including Tate Britain; Tate St Ives; Venice Biennale; Royal Academy, London; Deste Foundation, Athens; PS1, NY; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Kunstmuseum Luzern; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Athens Biennale; Istanbul Biennial; Benaki Museum, Athens; and Folkestone Triennial. Chodzko has previously received awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York, and an AHRC Creative Research Fellowship. He lives and works in Whitstable, Kent.
