BRATTLEBORO — On Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m., at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Fafnir Adamites will give a talk about the artist's installation 'Interfere (with),' on view through March 7, and the ways in which the sculptures act as “monuments and reminders of trauma, intuition, and the legacy of emotional turmoil.”
Curator Sarah Freeman said in a news release that “Adamites' installation of felted wool and burlap feels overwhelming and potentially suffocating. However, the use of highly tactile materials and repetitive, contemplative techniques allows the work to function as a tool for acknowledging, examining, and making sense of painful memories and experiences, thereby diffusing them.”
Adamites holds an M.F.A. degree from the Fiber and Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a B.A. in Photography and Women's Studies from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, took part in a residency at the Studios at MASS MoCA in 2016, and has won numerous awards.
Admission for the talk is free. To learn more, call 802-257-0124 or visit www.brattleboromuseum.org.
