Gerard Adam is a versatile artist whose work reveals a passion for the inner world. Photography, which he studied at InRaCi in Brussels in the seventies, early on attracted him to the art world.
In 1973, in reaction to traditional teaching, he created, with five other students and photography professors, the PHOBIE group. This avant-garde photo collective aimed to explore new avenues, which they successfully did for several years. About twenty exhibitions marked the group's journey, including one at the Museum of Fine Arts in Mons in 1975. That same year, the Museum of Maubeuge awarded the group the "Espoirs 75 de la photographie" prize.
After a long break, the need to share his passion and work was felt again, and he began various collaborations.
His series "Metamorphosis, when the spectator becomes the actor", created with the enV.I.E.S. collective and dedicated to poetry slam, has been shown many times in Belgium and abroad.
In 2013, forty years after the birth of PHOBIE, he created the Lueur Fauve collective with other passionate photographers, with whom he participated several times in "L'art dans la ville" in Tournai as well as in the International Image Biennial of Nancy.
In 2022, "Regards croisés", in collaboration with writer Daniel Charneux, marks a new turning point in his work.
