Ann Maria Healy is a visual artist based in Dublin. Her practice is concerned with reoccurrence, mimesis, the power of history and narratives deeply embedded within the human psyche. Taking established tropes, she reworks them into alternative narratives, seeking potential methods of togetherness outside of the contemporary hegemonic modes of social being. Issues of gender and representation within popular culture are important reference points within her practice.
Selected exhibitions include Futures, Series 3, Episode 1, The Royal Hibernian Academy Dublin (2017); I like to eat with my hands, Wexford Arts Centre 2016; Your ass protrudes toward the malaise, Eight Gallery, Dublin (2015); Kairos Time, Tent Gallery, Rotterdam (2014). Previous residencies include The Cow House Studios, Wexford (2015); The Banff Centre, Canada (2014); The Guesthouse, Cork (2011) and The Live Art Development Agency, London (2010). Healy is an MFA graduate of The Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2014) and a recipient of the Irish Arts Council, Visual Artist Bursary Award (2016).
