Zoe Sheehan Saldana fabricates functional, handmade, faithful duplicates of mass-produced objects. She then releases her creations into environments where they risk going unnoticed. The artist writes, “I hope that the objects and experiences I create provoke unsettledness, to make us consider once again, and with greater attention, that which we thought we knew.” (Excerpt and images below selected from grant proposal. All works are copyright of the artist.)

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide Ms. Saldana with a direct artist grant to assist her production and development of new work.
