Mary Mattingly

Mary Mattingly creates sculptural ecosystems in urban spaces. She is currently working on a floating food forest for New York called “Swale” and recently completed a two-part sculpture, “Pull,” for the International Havana Biennial with the Museo National de Belles Artes de la Habana and the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Mattingly founded the Waterpod Project, a barge-based public space and regenerative habitat with food grown on the barge, rainwater collection, solar energy, and recycling living systems that hosted over 200,000 visitors in 2009. She has been awarded grants and fellowships from A Blade of Grass, Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology, Yale University School of Art, the Jerome Foundation, and the Art Matters Foundation. Her work has been featured in Aperture Magazine, Art in America, Artforum, Sculpture Magazine, The New York Times, Financial Times, Le Monde, New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and on BBC News, MSNBC, Fox News, NPR, and on Art21.
