Addison has worked as a translator and ceramic artist in Mexico, where he was a long-term artist-in-residence from 2016 to 2019 at Taller Mono Rojo (Mexico City) and studied traditional firing techniques in Santa María Atzompa (Oaxaca).
Addison's research focuses on how artists and anthropologists in Latin America are responding to the climate crisis. He is particularly interested in the political implications of the ontological turn in anthropology (Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, Eduardo Kohn, Marisol de la Cadena) and the ways in which the disciplines of art and anthropology interact in the work of a group of contemporary Mexican artists whose production gestures towards non-textual, plastic ethnographic practices (Eduardo Abaroa, Lorena Ancona, Jorge Satorre, Noé Martínez, Aleph Escobedo).
