The South African artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK takes inspiration from indigenous dance.
Adams' cross-disciplinary practice combines aspects of weaving, sculpture and installation whilst exploring concerns related to race, religion and sexuality.
Drawing on the material and formal iconographies of Islam, his intricate textile works also reference the socio-political histories of creole communities.
The exhibition takes the form of a single immersive environment. It consists largely of new works that have been produced for the occasion.
Each work, and the exhibition as a whole, is composed of multiple patterns. These explore the potential of woven material to reflect the multiplicities of Adams’ own identity and of broader cultural interchange.
