In Constant Use

Gillam, Adam (2020) In Constant Use. .


In Constant Use is a solo exhibition at Tintype Gallery, London. The title refers to the space in which Gillam currently works – a garage awaiting conversion to a studio, and to his working methods. Change, evolution, and cannibalization are key to Gillam's practice, where strategies and methods around painting, image making and bricolage result in witty transformations of found, utilitarian materials that often include drawings, notes and phrases, layered into wall-based pieces. This is particularly evident in new photographic works presented in In Constant Use. Glimpses of the artist in his studio in the act of taking a photograph, are overlaid with magic-marker squiggles, bits of coloured tape, a piece of fabric with a fragment of a drawing taped over the top.
