Born in Israel and raised in Vancouver, Adam Basanta has lived and worked in Montreal since 2010. Originally studying contemporary music composition, he has developed an artistic practice in mixed-media installations. Exhibited in galleries and institutions both in Canada and abroad, his works have received multiple awards. Through his installations, Adam Basanta investigates technology as a meeting point of concurrent, overlapping systems. His latest work, Artist Survival Station, is a fully automated performative, living, ecosystemic, food-producing sculpture. The final product, which will be documented in his studio, is a hybrid object that’s both aesthetic and functional.
