AUTHORS: Suze Adams
Dr Suze Adams explores the inter-relationship between people and place, examining connections between an experience of landscape and the forces (human and non-human) that shape the environments we encounter. Focusing on temporality and an oscillation between presence and absence in the experiential landscape, Suze’s work slips a delicate veil between the physical and psychological, documentation and poetry, fact and fiction. Her practice presents in the form of still and moving imagery, sound, text and performance and often incorporates objects in order to allude to other times and places.
Drawing on a range of multi-disciplinary references, her research critically examines the concepts of dwelling and home, where dwelling is understood as ontological and home as non-unitary. Located between description and analysis, her work raises critical questions around issues of belonging and identity, about what and where we might call home.
Suze is an independent research artist who exhibits/performs across the UK and Europe. She is a founder member of Space Place Practice and part of the Family Ties Network.
