About Sean Cordeiro & Claire Healy

Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healy construct large assemblages from household furniture, industrial debris, and everyday consumables. In Par Avion (2011) they deconstructed a Cessna airplane into 70 pieces and mailed it from Rome to San Francisco, where they then reassembled it. “The wreckage of the plane that no longer has the capability of flying will be given new means of movement,” the artists said. They use their work to illustrate the possibilities of reuse and recycling in a hyper-commercial world cluttered with unused objects and waste.
