Lolly Adams

Lives & works in London

 

Lolly Adams is a multidisciplinary artist exploring emotional states of being through collage, costume, video and performance. Her creation of imaginary creatures invites the viewer to place themselves within this unsettling world, rousing feelings of disquiet through humorous spectacle. Lolly considers the construction of relationships and memories through storytelling and examines how images and objects define and redefine identity.
