Artist’s Project: Adam Chodzko


Over the course of 16 pages, the British artist offers a “journey to one page” in particular—a unique object hand-inserted into each copy of Esopus 17.

Adam Chodzko’s conceptually driven work spans a range of media, from video, installation art, and performance to fly posters and drawings. Born in London, Chodzko studied Art History at the University of Manchester and Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London. Since 1991, his work has been exhibited at the Tate St. Ives; the Venice Biennale; the Royal Academy, London; the Deste Foundation, Athens; and P.S.1/MoMA, New York. In 2002, Chodzko received awards from the Hamlyn Foundation and Foundation for Contemporary Art. In 2007, he was awarded an AHRC Creative Research Fellowship in the film department at the University of Kent, Canterbury. In 2016, he received a DACS Art360 award, and in 2023, he was awarded a British Council Connections Through Culture Grant and an Arts Council National Lottery Project Grant. His work is in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery, the British Council, the Arts Council, and numerous museums and private collections. Chodzko lives and works in Whitstable, Kent.
