I About

Round of Applause, 2018

Tara Fadenrecht peels layers. These layers often include the grooves left in the wake of power. As each layer is exposed, she worries their deposits until they cling by mere filaments. It is only when the layers reach this critical point is she able to fully dissect connections, muddle temporality, and reboot the layered system.

She is interested in the cyclical nature of political rhetoric. Often her work becomes a mash-up of historical references intermingled with present-day blustering.

Fadenrecht works in sculpture, video, animation and photography. She is a Lecturer and the DMSE Metal Artist in Residence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
