Igshaan Adams is a Cape Town-based artist. His work is often hard to pin-down, as its subject matter is in-betweens. Formally, many of his pieces exist between textile and sculpture, while the work draws meaning from the push-and-pull of conflicting identities – Adams’ own experience as a liberal-minded Muslim raised in his Christian grandparents’ home, as a coloured South African and as queer– to explore the tensions that arise from a hybrid position in the world.
