Because, (2013, at Tate Britain, as part of the exhibition Schwitters in Britain) and We are Ready for your Arrival (2013 at Raven Row, London) further develop these ideas through sculpture, video, drawing and photography, presented as manifestations of the unconscious relationships between individuals and groups; their excesses, displacements and disappearances.

Throughout these earlier works, and further explored in later works such as The Pickers (2009, the editing of a British film archive by a group of migrant Romanian strawberry pickers) and Ghost (2010, a kayak designed by Chodzko for “visiting the dead”), are investigations into processes of how memory, archiving, empathy, identification and the imaginary are shaped by the act of looking.


A trilogy of video installations, Hole (2007, at Bologna Museum of Modern Art), Around (2007, based in Dublin and partly set in Ballymun) and Pyramid (2008, commissioned for the Folkestone Triennial) developed a series of myths set in the near future and focused on the relationship between a community and its architectural ruins. Echo (2009, a video installation commissioned by Creative Time, New York), interweaves archive footage, documentary technique and conjecture to reveal that a derelict military ballroom on Governors Island, New York, was a site used for an anti-materialistic gift-exchange ritual invented by the children of the island’s military.


In 2002, Chodzko received awards from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists award, and in 2007 was awarded an AHRC Creative Research Fellowship in the Film Department at the University of Kent, Canterbury. In 2015 Chodzko was shortlisted for the Jarman Award. In 2016 Chodzko was awarded an award from DACS ART360 in order to facilitate the comprehensive archiving of his artwork from 1990 to the present.


Chodzko’s development of these ideas and processes later became consolidated into a body of work collectively titled Design for a Carnival (c. 2001–2007). This includes works such as Plan for a Spell (2001, a video exploring ritual within the British landscape through programming its image, subtitles and audio to randomly combine in order to release a potential ‘spell’ embedded within it); Settlement (2004, the legal purchase of a square foot of land as a gift to a stranger), Nightshift (2004, the tracking of a late night parade of nocturnal animals to the Frieze Art Fair, mapped, to provide animal paths through the fair’s ‘labyrinth’ for human visitors to follow) and M-path (2006, the collection and distribution of “appropriate” footwear for gallery visitors to wear, altering their movement through the gallery space, and therefore their perception of it).


Place as a site which appears to exercise power and influence over the people who happen to occupy it is often explored through Chodzko’s use of displacement, separating objects and images from their familiar and ‘natural’ time and situation in order to relocate them in the “wrong place” so that a change might be catalysed by that dislocation. A series of works entitled Better Scenery (2000–2002) sited pairs of mutually dependent billboard signs at various locations in the world giving travel directions to the location of the opposite sign. The Flasher works (1990-1996) were a series of one-minute videos, shot by Chodzko, documenting darkness being temporarily illuminated by marine distress-flares, with these sequences individually disseminated by adding them to the surplus tape following the credits of VHS feature films tapes rented from video rental-stores.


Chodzko has been included in many British Council curated international exhibitions of British Art including General Release (1995) in Venice, Micro/Macro: British Art 1996-2002,(2003), Mucsarnok Kunsthalle, Budapest, Breaking Step (2007), Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, and Private Utopia(2014), Japan.


Examples of Chodzko’s socially-engaged artworks include Product Recall (1994, posters, advertisements and video installation), using the process of a product recall to assemble owners of a particular jacket made ten years earlier; Salò:Reunion (1998, posters, advertisements, photographs and video installation made through organising the reunion of the children ‘murdered’ in Salò (1972), Pasolini’s notorious film); The god Look-Alike Contest (1992, a mixed media installation created through responses to an advertisement in a classified advertisements paper); and cell-a (2002, a slide projection and event, initiated through giving a London gallery’s archive to a group of Kurdish asylum seekers to edit and mediate outside the capital).


Exhibiting work since 1991, working across media, from video installation to subtle interventions, and with a practice that is situated both within the gallery and the wider public realm, Chodzko’s work explores our collective imagination by wondering how, through the visual, we might best engage with the existence of others. His art proposes new relationships between our value and belief systems, examining their effect on our communal and private spaces and working with the documents and fictions that control, describe and guide these systems and spaces. Working directly with the networks of people and places that surround him, often using forms of anthropology, he focuses on the relational politics of culture’s edges, endings, displacements, transitions and disappearances through a provocative looking in the ‘wrong’ place. Chodzko’s practice operates between documentary and fantasy (especially in the form of “science fiction”, using art to propose alternative realities), conceptualism and surrealism and public and private space, often engaging reflexively and directly with the role of the viewer.

Since 1991, Chodzko has exhibited at numerous venues around the world including Tate Britain; Tate St Ives; Venice Biennale; Royal Academy, London; Deste Foundation, Athens; PS1, NY; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Kunstmuseum Luzern; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Athens Biennale; Istanbul Biennial; Benaki Museum, Athens; and Folkestone Triennial.


The theme of physically remote but intimate cross-cultural social networks, operating on both a conscious and unconscious (or even supernatural) level, has been a consistent theme in Chodzko’s work, from the anticipation of digital social-networking communities in the Transmitter series (1990-) and The god Look-Alike Contest(1991) and more recently in the installation A Room for Laarni, Image Moderator (2013). This latter series of mixed-media works are based around the relationship and flow of images between a western European social-networking site (for teenagers) and an image moderator, based in the Philippines, whose job it is to monitor this flood of digital photographs, in order to flag up those whose contents might be deemed ‘bad’.

Although curated into many of the major Young British Artist exhibitions (e.g.; Sensation (art exhibition), and Brilliant!) of the 1990s (and in 2014, London Calling), Chodzko’s practice – from his 1990 works with pre-internet social networks via classified advertisements – is more closely identifiable (through its notions of participation, process, intersubjectivity and community) with the Relational art that was to follow (partly in opposition to the dependency on spectacle that defined YBA art). Kevin Jackson, (1996) singled out Chodzko from the other YBA’s for his art’s “pensiveness”, involving “quiet acts of infiltration…nothing to do with one-line shock effects.” In 2013, Dan Fox, reappraising the diversity of British Art of the early 1990s, writes of Chodzko’s work from this period as developing a “British occult modern… behavioural experiments to probe the public sphere.”, whilst Jonathan Jones (journalist) described Chodzko as a “subversive…master of provocation” in The Guardian.


Adam Chodzko was born in London, England. He graduated from the University of Manchester in 1988 with a degree in the History of Art and in 1994 completed an MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London.
