Adam Muscat is a Jewish, London-based multidisciplinary artist. His art practice comprises experimental film, sound, drawing, and installation.
Muscat’s process consists of layering and erasing mud, charcoal, and oil paint to create evocative compositions. Through a superposition of material and mediums, he challenges the validity of memory, with each element a recollection of the past that is erased or layered, positing memory as a fluid phenomenon. Moreover, his work extracts signs and symbols inherent to early Jewish mysticism (Kabbalah) and deviates from them to encompass the visual language of contemporary art praxis. The works are then configured into spatial installations, expanding on the materiality inherent to the pieces. Muscat utilises multiple artistic production languages, transcending the work from something familiar to something idiosyncratic that requires a sensory experience to be comprehended.
