Adam Chodzko
Artist in Residence

October 2018 – March 2019

Adam Chodzko is Artist in Residence with Whitstable Biennale for six months between October 2018 – March 2019, shaping our future plans and programmes in North Kent.

Chodzko is working with us to scope out new affiliations, and explore our potential role within communities between Whitstable and Dartford.

In conversation with local people, groups and organisations, Chodzko will design a new residency programme for Whitstable Biennale, which aims to find new ways for artists to spend time in North Kent to research and develop new work.

Chodzko first worked with Whitstable Biennale in 2006. His performative lecture, Longshore Drift, Early Detroit Techno and Other Processes of Erosionbegan a relationship which has included many projects and exhibitions, including the major commission Ghost (2010), most recently shown by Groundworks in Cornwall. Chodzko contributed to our 2018 programme, as part of our Ash Walks programme curated by Rose Thompson as part of the The Ash Project , as well as The School of Beginnings and The House of Beautifully Earned Trust
