Known as the Gentle Sculptor of Hackney Wick, Olivier makes poetic, round shaped sculptures, intuitively made by hand by intertwining accessible materials such as lime, sand, plants and found objects.

His aim is to engage with his audience through memory and emotion leading an ongoing conversation about ambiguous loss, uncertainty and unfinishedness. Olivier believes that sculpture is accessible to all through using simple materials that can be bought at builders’ merchants, or even found in your street.

 

His sculptures create a dialogue with the audience through the sense of touch which allows to connect with our environment in a way that is impossible to our eyes. Olivier Adam creates an eternal cycle allowing the nature to become a part of the artworks or if those do come to an end, they gradually dissolve back into nature.
