GLENN ADENDORFF

ABOUT THE ARTIST

 Glenn Adendorff – In Search of Serendipity

‘Children,’ said cosmologist Carl Sagan, ‘ask all the right questions. Why is the sky blue? How do birds fly? But pretty soon the schools, the institutions, knock it out of them and they become good, solid members of society. But some people keep asking those questions. And these people end up becoming scientists; or even poets.’

Glenn Adenforff is one such poet. Whether it is through his jewellery, his imagery, his music, his cinematography; or even his poetry, he is always asking the right questions. The hard, heavy, numinous ones that make people uncomfortable because the answers, if there are indeed any, are elusive, chimeric creatures that can never be caught and pinned to the wall.

What is truth? What is beauty? What does it matter? In all the mediums through which his restless spirit weaves, Glenn is in prolific pursuit of these vexing vanishing points. Yet, like any artist of calibre, he is not particularly interested in answers but in the wild ride through the forests of the soul and the wormholes of the mind that such a quest involves.

The richly complex tapestry of Glenn’s creativity tells the story of an artist comprised of myriad facets and a multitude of dimensions. The visceral blur of stream-of-consciousness images and sounds that comprises his film and music is pure punk DIY experimentalism while the exquisite craftsmanship of his singular jewellery creations reflects a relentless devotion to detail.
