Our Mission

The Mattress Factory is an artist-centered museum, international residency program and renowned producer and presenter of installation art. We say “yes” to artists, offering time and space to dream and realize projects in our hometown, Pittsburgh, PA. We invite audiences from around the world and around the corner to step inside, immerse and connect with the artistic process.

ROY

Towers of Pittsburgh

2002

- 2003

Using brass, iron and steel, the artist creates a small, precisionist, and industrial landscape.

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

ROY is a jeweler and silversmith. Using brass, iron and steel, she creates a small, precisionist, and industrial landscape. But instead of welding her materials she uses the precious soldering metals of the silversmith. The sound of industrial energy is incorporated into the piece and a trail of white smoke intermittently escapes from a smokestack.
