About this event
Inaugurating NN’s Sensing Place placemaking and research programme, the Architectural Tissues workshop with Adam Moore took a transdisciplinary approach to exploring space – through touch, movement and photography. Participants combined these investigations through drawing, painting, and conversation. Adam describes his work as an exploration of space, or an inquiry into the way materials hold together and the impact of this has on the self and on other people. He is curious about how architectural structures are designed and engineered, and the parameters for movement –embodied, spatial and social– that these structures shape.
2-3 pm: Exploring interior space through the body and movement
3-4 pm: Exploring exterior space within Northampton through walking and movement
4-5 pm: Drawing and painting in response to findings
About the Artist
Adam Moore is a transdisciplinary 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, 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.
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 with support from Jerwood Arts and Kunstraum, London. A Trinity Laban Leverhulme Performing Arts Scholar with an MFA in Dance Creative Practice, he is currently associate Lecturer for Contemporary Performance Practice: Experimental Arts and Performance at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
