Artist's Statement

DeFelice hacks mechanics, and configures and fabricates various materials to generate moving objects, installations and performance. Her studio is essentially a shop with an array of materials and equipment. Presentations of her work are toy-like, menacing sets of investigations into sight, sound, movement, and space. Technologies are resurrected—such as obsolete electronic devices, appliances & instruments. She keeps a fluctuating collection of such materials in various di/resassembled states. Through reconstruction, the artist makes amalgamated, operational, representational works based upon her interests & perspectives pieced together from experiences with people, places, and things. There’s an attempt to provoke dialogues and perceptiveness over existence, behavior, and how things work and/or cycle. Her sensorial environments hint a message, or simply point to communication itself as a link between people—either working or not.


Andréa DeFelice was born in New York in 1979.
