Niklas Adam

Niklas Adam (1986, Denmark, currently based in Oslo, Norway) examines the ability of work on the border between visual art and music to break loose from the traditional behavioral patterns of listening, rational thinking and immediacy. Sound, movement, perception and how we choose or are confined, to interpret the outside world, is a recurring theme in Adam’s work. His approach is characterized by questioning the performance of music and especially how the traditional platform for music closes off the possibility for other types of listening in society. His work is often demanding and patient.
