BIOGRAPHY

Adam Christensen works take their starting point in personal experiences, which he expands with fictional elements. This results in stirring and humorous performances, films, short stories, and textile works infused with love, desire, melancholy, and loss. The characters appearing in these stories range from angst-ridden and sex-obsessed teenagers to film noir anti-heroines to great Hollywood divas exalted by the attributes of their own archetypal role.  

Christensen has recently exhibited at: Hunt Kastner; Kunstverien in Hamburg; CCA Goldsmiths; Overgaden; Kunsthal Aarhus; Southbank Center; and Tallinn Art Hall
