EXPOSED, TARA FADENRECHT INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION
REpose Gallery is pleased to announce Tara Fadenrecht’s installation, on display in Gallery 144 at the River East Art Center in Chicago, Illinois from October 2 – November 9, 2009.An opening reception will be held October 2, 2009, from 6:00-9:00 p.m., with an accompanying artist presentation about the work on October 6, 2009 at 6:30 p.m.
Fadenrecht’s shell shaped, cage like interactive installation is constructed of hand-woven polypropylene and steel strapping with employment/inclusion of video, light and sound. The installation evolves from the recognition of the self created, angst based cage.The initial relief felt at this revelation is short-lived though, as awareness gives way to the unalleviated persistence of the newly identified anxiety. Viewers are encouraged to share their reactions via a digital recorder located near the work.
A resident artist at the River East Art Center since 2008, Fadenrecht earned a B.F.A in Metalsmithing from the University of Kansas in 2002. Earlier this year, she was awarded a Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, to help fund this project.
