Biography Tavares Strachan
Tavares Strachan (born 1979, Nassau, Bahamas) lives and works in New York City. He received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2003 and an MFA from Yale University in 2006.
Crossing all media, Strachan transforms ordinary material into meditations on existence and physical and psychological geography. His work highlights the migratory nature of artistic production. Strachan is perhaps best known internationally for his 2006 work titled The Distance Between What We Have and What We Want, consisting of a 4.5 ton block of ice harvested in a river near Mount McKinley, Alaska and FedExed to The Bahamas, where is was placed in a solar-powered transparent refrigerated case in Nassau.
