Using feltmaking and other traditional craft processes, Fafnir Adamites creates sculptural works that act as monuments and reminders of trauma, intuition and the legacy of emotional turmoil inherited from past generations. Embedding meaning in both the materials and the repetitious processes plays a key role in building the conceptual backing of each piece. Fafnir 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. www.fafniradamites.com
Neil Young Cloaca makes sounds, images, and events that celebrate intentionally unstable systems, clumsiness, and improvisation, in the uncomfortable space between humor and menace. Cloaca's primary outputs are sound recordings and videos, circulated through a variety of underground recording labels and microcinemas. In addition he maintains a brisk performance schedule, touring regionally and internationally, as well as thoughtfully programming events that showcase artists touring from afar. www.yeay.suchfun.net
