Through her drawn, screen printed, and stuffed fabric installations, Kay Healy investigates themes of home, memory, displacement, and loss. She is interested in how objects can embody vivid memories of people, events, and periods of someone’s life. The exhibition features a life-size installation, Lost and Found, along with a number of new works. Lost and Found includes life-size, handmade furniture objects based on stories of lost objects from interviews with over forty individuals from the Philadelphia area; this work was displayed in the Central Library of Philadelphia, and was supported by the Independence Foundation’s Fellowship in the Arts.
Healy earned an MFA from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, in Book Arts and Printmaking. Originally from Staten Island, NY, she currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
