Romy Scheroder is originally from Trinidad and is currently based out of Brooklyn, NY. She creates her sculptures through a focus on our relationship to each other and to the objects with which we surround ourselves. Her solo shows include Perceptual Uncertainty, Rosenwald Wolf Gallery, Philadelphia, PA (2005); and Boutique (window installation), Window on Broad, Philadelphia, PA (2004). Her work has been included in group exhibitions such as Endless Summer, White Box Gallery, New York, NY (2012); Reinterpreting the Decorative Arts, University Mary Washington Galleries, Fredericksburg, VA (2012); and Caribe Now: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Diaspora, Nathan Cummings Foundation, New York, NY (2012). Scheroder was selected to participate in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Market Place program (2011). She holds a B.F.A. from Florida Atlantic University and an M.F.A. from The University of the Arts. During her residency on Governors Island, Scheroder will work on her project The Stateliness of Ancient Days, which is composed of a diorama with sculptural elements that explore the psychological flux of memory, history, and bodies trapped in motion. The objects will be in a disembodied, theatrical, and morphed state, eliciting the sensation of the subconscious.
