Gabrielle Adamik


Gabrielle Adamik's work is a study of material interactions. The current exhibition at The Egg & Dart presents vessels that test gravity and suspension. The shapes slump like a body that would enjoy being pulled and stretched back to upright. Heavy and sac‑like, they are able to reconfigure depending on their attachment to wall or ceiling. Kiln-fired glasswork forms ropey and delicate structures, with Adamik's material research suggesting different paths that could be taken to an outcome. The synthesis attained in these sculptures aligns with the artist's prior experience as a dancer. Spatial symmetries and qualities of balance prompt slowness, creating an installation through which the viewer might choreograph their own movements.
