Chris Domenick’s ‘Archipelago (Dock)’ is a mixed-style kitchen island informed by the architectural mash-up of Queens and engaged with the concept of public sculpture as a meeting place and site of exchange. Part of a series of isolated sculptures installed throughout New York City, the work challenges Modernist and contemporary ideological conceptions of autonomy, use-value, and leisure. A satirical user manual accompanies the work.
