The Souvenir Shop

Amy Santoferraro is fascinated by collections and collected objects. She rowdily rummages through thrift stores and flea markets tearing through objects whose usefulness has been exhausted and awaits deliverance to a new imagined life. She carefully handpicks objects that are familiar or boast a degree of promise and beauty and she relentlessly tinkers with them until they are tranformed into works of art.
