Adam Lewis Jacob is the recipient of the 2017 exchange with Triangle France. Shortlisted artists this year were Andrew Black, Jennifer Clews, Marco Giordano, Felix Welch and Rhona Muhlebach.

During this time he will have access to a studio, shared accommodation in Marseille and be provided with a 1000 euros production grant, as well as have logistical support including production, research and curatorial assistance.

Adam Lewis Jacob’s practice centers around the development of situations for shared authorship, in which he explores filmmaking as a space for relinquishing total control, incorporating traces of process and performance, amidst a surplus of objects, information, images and stuff. Over the last year, he has participated in several exhibitions allowing him space to experiment and develop his practice. While Adam’s work is predominantly moving image based, he often makes installations that incorporate the material used to create the film.

Adam Lewis Jacob graduated from the MFA programme at the Glasgow School of Art in 2015 and primarily works in video and installation. He studied on exchange at Piet Zwart Institute in 2015 and in 2011 was selected for the Mountain School of Arts program in Los Angeles. In 2016, Adam was the recipient of  the Superlux research award alongside Elizabeth Murphy. Recent exhibitions include: Emotional Need, Collective, Edinburgh, ANTIPHON, Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016, India, Double Parrhesia, Catalyst, Belfast and FFWD, Duolon Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai. Adam is a co-founder of exhibition space Celine and until May 2017 was a committee member at Transmission gallery. He is taking part in Collective’s 2017 Satellites programme and has been selected for the summer residency at Hospitalfield.
