There’s nothing imposing about their delicate, crinkled surfaces, and yet they oblige a certain mode of engagement in the viewer – looking up, around, behind – that generate an unusual power imbalance between the viewer and the viewed.
Occupying the space of the human body, Adams’ works suggest a physical absence, something drained of life, yet crackling with potential energy.
