Niklas Adam, bosatt i Oslo, vant kampen om dette årets residency-opphold ved V2 Rotterdam som deltaker i Summer Sessions 2014. Han arbeider i grenselandet mellom elektromekanikk, skulptur, objekter, grafikk, lydkunst, performance, improvisasjon og musikk. Han har turnert i Norden, Europa og Japan, og har arbeidet med blant andre Mattin, Taku Unami og Toshimaru Nakamura. Niklas er en sentral figur i Oslos nye improvisasjonsscene både som musiker og som primus motor for spille-/visnings-/altmulig-stedet Ila Fysikalske. Vi gratulerer!
