Adrian Williams was born in Portland, Orgeon in 1979. She studied at Cooper Union in New York and Staedelschule in Frankfurt. Expressing a desire to “conceive of the short story as a studio space in which she crafts work,” Williams radically reinvents the criteria for what can be considered an object of contemporary art. Conducting while narrating, reacting while being directed, Adrian Williams inserts herself, her collaborators, and her audience into a storyboard hall of auditory mirrors. Afforded the potential to be grand and gruesome, eloquently operatic or horrifically carnivalesque, sound may assume unexpected guises. Her work has been shown and performed in various exhibitions and institutions like the Portikus, Frankfurt (2005), the Nassauischer Kunstverein (2007), or the Biennale di Venezia (2002). Adrian Williams is as well one of the Co-Founder of The Contemporary Library, Prishtina, Kosovo.
