Adam Basanta

2017 | Main Prize Winner

Everyday electronic objects of commercial technology and communications assume new roles in the installations of Adam Basanta, taking on sculptural forms. In Curtain (white) the ubiquitous white earbud headphones become a three metre-long array, generating white noise patterns. Basanta was a longliste for the Sobey Art Award, Canada. He was the winner of the Prix Pierre Ayot 2019. He has exhibited work in the National Art Centre, Tokyo.
