Tere Recarens has gained increasing recognition for her eclectic outpouring of works, in which her often eccentric preoccupations are as much a part of her life as her art. For a number of years, Recarens has produced countless drawings that often seem to propose metaphorical and/or exotic interpretations of everyday life. In some cases, her drawings translate into performances, installations, videos, photographs or sculptures, almost always of an autobiographical nature. In her 2003 video Besenrein, Recarens layers the daredevil act of skydiving with the domestic activity of sweeping, emerging with yet another surreal side of her ongoing self-potraiture project. Recarens is the (modest) star of her own (eccentric) life.
