Art Talk Tuesday is a monthly conversation that invites contemporary artists to discuss their work and the issues surrounding it. This month features fiber artist Fafnir Adamites.

Art Talk Tuesday is a monthly conversation that invites contemporary artists to discuss their work and the issues surrounding it, followed by a moderated Q&A with Brand staff member, artist and writer Jennifer Remenchik. Art Talk Tuesday artists are selected to reflect the diversity of the art scene of the greater Los Angeles area.

Fafnir Adamites is a fiber artist and educator. Using weaving, papermaking, and basketry, they create sculptures that act as monuments and reminders of trauma, intuition and the legacy of emotional turmoil inherited from past generations. Adamites works mainly with paper and wool, which they call “chaos structures”. Unlike a woven textile which is grounded in an orderly grid, chaos structures are open-ended and are based on a disorderly foundation. A powerful transformation takes place in papermaking and feltmaking when the millions of chaotic fibers bind together to make a strong, cohesive, singular piece. The conceptual depth rooted in these materials relates to their interest in reclaiming personal intuition and agency within the chaotic landscape of trauma. Adamites holds an MFA degree from the Fiber and Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in Photography and Women’s Studies from UMass Amherst. They are an Assistant Professor in the Fiber Area at California State University, Long Beach and has taught workshops and intensives at Arrowmont School of Art and Craft, Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program and Women’s Studio Workshop.

Art Talk Tuesday is sponsored by the Brand Associates.
