‘Graveyard Scenes and Lite-Brite Dreams’
Additional Space is delighted to present the work of Adam Green. The exhibition features Green’s expressive oil crayon drawings and his more illustrative drawings from the ‹Graveyard› series. Both series explore a dystopian-comedic world in which the schizophrenic nature of human existence in an age of omnipresent digital surveillance is palpable.
Adam Green is an artistic polymath – a songwriter, filmmaker, visual artist, and poet. A co-founder of The Moldy Peaches and author of ten solo-albums, his songs have been performed by artists as diverse as The Libertines, Carla Bruni, Kelly Willis, Dean & Britta, and Will Oldham. Green’s paintings and sculptures have been the subject of exhibitions in America, Asia and Europe, including a 2016 show at the Fondation Beyeler Museum in Basel, Switzerland. He wrote and directed the feature film ‹The Wrong Ferarri› (2010), the first feature film shot entirely on an iPhone, and Adam Green’s ‹Aladdin› (2016) which Buzzfeed described as «the trippiest movie ever made.» Most recently, Green has authored a series of graphic novels and poetry books. He is currently writing the screenplay to ‹The Wrong Ferarri 2›.
