Victoria Adam is interested in materials, forms and products that are modest and often overlooked.


Collecting, copying and remaking approximations of shells, coins, air fresheners, compost, fridge magnets and fossils, Adam draws attention through her astute formal compositions to the things that we brush up against every day. Her sculptural vignettes embody numerous tensions; between the specific and the generic, the clean and the grubby, and the elegant and the raw.

This exhibition, entitled ☽⦶, takes its name from an interpretation of the alchemical symbol for lunar caustic a material more commonly known as silver nitrate. The substance can cauterize wounds, and is still used in medicine today. With a series of new works for Invites, Adam has borrowed from the visual language of toiletries, bathroom fixtures and food trays to create arrangements that could relate to both institutional spaces and private domestic settings. A sense of haptic pleasure in the manipulation of materiality, surface and scale prompts reflection on the rituals and cycles of bodily maintenance we are encouraged to undertake, especially in relation to other bodies in the city.
