Ann Maria Healy’s work expresses itself through video, sculptural and textual form.
Her practice is concerned with reoccurrence, the power of history and narratives embedded
within the human psyche. She seeks to co-opt the embodied meaning of material in order to
unpack and subvert it. She is drawn to narrative that is connected to place and object, often
acting in an absurd manner, the work seeks to employ mysticism as a tool to reconsider our
present moment.
