Bundle Sculptures

Sculptor Mary Mattingly in her studio in New York with colorful bundle sculptures

I've been making bundle sculptures since 2013.

These bundles are time capsules that contain objects, fabric scraps, and clothing with important stories to tell. Some of them recount public events, and others are from specific locations. Others were gifted to me by strangers, and still more were left with me as people in my life have moved away, leaving mementos behind.

The Bundle Sculptures and Small Sculptures have been in exhibitions around the world, from OÖ Kulturquartier Museum in Linz, Austria to the Brooklyn Museum in New York, USA.
