Kim Adams is an assembler of objects and a bricoleur of materials. He collects, breaks down and then recombines commercially available items to create fanciful, hybrid structures of various scales that propose alternative modes of mobility, domesticity, labour and leisure. Commenting on consumerism, architecture and modern social adaptation, his works have been displayed in a variety of unconventional locales, including busy streets and frozen lakes. Caboose Studio A and B and Citroën Citroën are recent examples of the artist’s propensity for “kit bashing” models and toy parts together to create miniature worlds gone awry. Minnow Lure – a grain bin repurposed into a life-size ice hut – demonstrates his interests in the vehicle and the home, and playfully collapses both into a single unit.
