Taking apart the formats of artistic production, Adam Knight addresses complexities inherent in art-making. He is interested in pursuing and interrogating moments of a-synchronicity, doubt and self-critique. Starting points often involve researching personal histories alongside specific art, film, architectural and literary references. These may manifest into film, sound, text, sculpture or photography. Works directly inform one another and contribute to a broader practice-led exploration of presentation and association.
