Featured Performance:



July, 2022, Prague

adam performs in the tree, among the leaves, under language, before the river, on the wall.

A performance involving 1 naked body, 20 surgical needles, 3 mounds of coal, 10 species of wildflower, 1 rain storm, and tv in a trash bag.

Audience members witnessed Adam pierce his skin with needles and attach strings from the needles to a tree across from him. Once fully nude and attached to the tree, he began maneuvering the tree with his body, becoming one delicate organism, slowing moving in the rain.
