Santina Amato

Current Work In Progress

Artist In Residence at 4Heads, Governros Island, NYC

April – November, 2021

Created while AIR at 4Heads Portal, Governors Island, New York, NY, this series place domestic furniture in direct conversation with a bio-morphic, organic shape made from domestic materials such as recycled household junk mail, garbage bags, flour, and glue. The sculptures reflect on a our world that was reduced to the confines of our domestic environment due to the pandemic, where boundaries of work and personal spaces became blurred. Amato will be back on Governors Island with 4Heads Portal this summer (2022) to continue the series.
