Fafnir 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. She teaches at Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program, UMass Amherst, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and at The Academy at Charlemont. She lives in Turners Falls, MA.
Using felt making and other traditional craft processes, Adamites creates sculptural and installation work that serve as meditations on trauma, memory and the legacy of emotional turmoil inherited from past generations. Using repetitious processes such as felt making allows the artist to physically engage with and meditate on the concepts she is working with. Material exploration is the starting point for all of her work and plays a key role in building the conceptual backing of each piece.
