Adam Christensen (1979, UK) lives and works in London, UK. His research reflects upon the mise-en-scene of a subject, its construction and representation. Madam, his alter-ego, transports through singing the audience into a private world of love and desire, melancholy and loss. The lines between the artist and viewer, life and fiction are blurred, as to explore the everyday as spectacle.
