Adam Basanta

Adam Basanta is an artist, composer, and performer of experimental music. Born in Tel-Aviv (ISR) and raised in Vancouver (CAN), he lives and works in Montreal. In his installation works, Basanta arranges common commercially available objects into delicately intertwined and seemingly performative choreographies, disrupting their technical and economic functions while revealing their material agencies and status as extended technological prostheses.His work has been recently been exhibited in galleries and institutions including Carroll/ Fletcher Gallery (UK), Fotomuseum Winterthur (CH), National Art Centre Tokyo (JPN), American Medium Gallery (NYC), New Media Gallery (CAN), V Moscow Biennale for Young Art (RUS), Serralves Museum (POR), Edith-Russ-Haus fur Mediakunst (GER), Villa Brandolini (ITA), Vitra Design Museum (GER), York Art Gallery (UK), and The Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe (USA).
