Adam Chodzko’s art explores the interactions and possibilities of human behaviour. Exhibiting internationally since 1991, Chodzko works across media, from video installation to subtle interventions, with a practice that is situated both within the gallery and the wider public realm. His work investigates and invents possibilities of collective imagination in order to reveal the realities and fantasies that might emerge from the processes of engagement his practice evolves. Design for a Fold is a new installation incorporating many of Chodzko’s works made ‘locally’ since 2001, mapping his particular engagement with diverse places, times and communities around where he lives and works in Whitstable, Kent, alongside new work which seeks to root, or fold, the idea of the local within another, apparently remote, alien and distant place; Beppu, Japan. Chodzko proposes a new understanding of Kent, that questions assumptions of who, what, when and where we might be. Design for a Fold suggests, through a recontextualising of his archive of artwork, new, dynamic and global connections that weave together the real and hidden with collective mythology and imagination. This exhibition has been kindly supported by the Arts Council England and the Elephant Trust.
