Adam Thompson distances himself from hands-on making excavating found debris and the stuff of the everyday. He keeps intervention to a minimum, carefully selecting objects and altering them in order to develop new explanations and new relationships with each other. Using the shallow horizon of the gallery floor to reinforce his interest in landscape he simultaneously combines intimate proximity and irreducible distance. The work addresses notions of: no beginning, no end. Philosophical questioning of metaphysics and materialism take president to the basic structure of framing landscape, often leaving the bigger questions about ‘the universe’ unanswered. In 2010 Adam Thompson had solo shows at MOT International, London, Showreel (curated by Paola Caravati), Milan and , ‘Unthinged’ at Hayward Gallery, Concrete.
