In February 2007, the Athens Biennale announced its first edition, Destroy Athens, by distributing crumpled golden cards with dates and details among artists and art historians during a conference staged at the Goethe-Institut in Athens, Prayer for (Passive?)

Throughout his career, Adam Norton has produced work which challenges perceptions of reality and truth. His institutional-scale installations deliver a range of physical and sensory experiences but, rather than dictating a pre-conceived response, they disarm and encourage dialogue.

In 2008, Norton curated three fully equipped army personnel carriers (tanks) to roam the finance district of Sydney, Australia. This monumental scale logistical installation pointed to our relative safety in comparison to the daily struggle of people in other parts of the world. Other works include a 2009 series of camouflage suits in which the artist disguised himself in a range of urban environments and the construction of a fully equipped nuclear survival bunker, made from a 1960s freestanding timber wardrobe.

Adam Norton graduated from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at Oxford University in 1987 and currently lives in Sydney, Australia. He has had more than fifteen solo exhibitions both in Australia and abroad including a number of site-specific curated projects. He has been shortlisted for numerous art awards such as the City of Albany Art Prize (2011), Hazelhurst Art Award (2009), John Leslie Art Prize (2008), New Social Commentary ’08 at Warrnambool Art Gallery, Redlands Westpac Art Prize (2007), ABN AMRO Artist Award (2007) and Robert Jacks Drawing Prize at Bendigo Art Gallery (2003).
