Adam James makes sculptural objects, drawings, photographs, videos and texts that all arise from his steadfast involvement in the performative practice of live action role play (larp). Within his practice, James positions the larp as a tool to trigger, on a micro level, future possibilities, new forms of collaborative democracy and the temporary dismantling of hierarchies.
An Extension of Us functions as a repository of objects, a set for action to unfold, the physical manifestation of past live events and an exhibition of its own rite. This multi-faceted environment presents the artist’s interest in the potential for an object or a space to be imbued by a live event, as well as a questioning of the adequacy of the exhibition format to represent the absent live act.
