GRIMM is pleased to present Hauntology (not really now not any more), Adam Helms’ second solo exhibition at the gallery, that will be on view at GRIMM Keizersgracht.
Helms is primarily known for exploring the visual motifs underlying images of subcultures, symbols of violence and historical archetypes. Through the assembling, archiving and appropriating of mass-mediated and internet-sourced photographic material, Helms has investigated notions of the performed identities of opposition groups, notions of the heroic versus the anti-heroic and aspects of tropes surrounding masculine identity.
