Alex Adkinson works through performance, sculpture and installation to create assemblages of polyvalent expressions of meaning via a conceptual paradigm of new materialism and vital semiotics. Through meditative, deep listening and improvisational practices Adkinson engages with the agencies of materials and concepts to enliven and uncovered the complexities of entangled meanings in ecological and capitalist realisms. These process which are always already in motion become the form and content of their own expressions. Adkinson has been a consistent facilitator of arts community and is involved with the integration of art and science through collaboration with ecological researchers. Adkinson has presented work through various non-traditional art spaces, galleries and museums such as the Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Weisman Art Museum and the Nevada Museum of Art.
