Poetic, surreal, and bringing a welcome quality of humour and satire, the images of Adam Niklewicz aim to poke holes in the illusion of a sanitised reality, defending the role of art as a free zone for expression. Rigorous places found objects – boxing gloves – in glass jars, subverting their purpose and opening up new interpretations.
Rigorous, 2016. Boxing gloves, jars. 30.5cm x 22.9cm x 15.2cm.
