still lives




Lauren Healey’s practice is concerned with the concepts of loss, remembrance and traces of personal history, particularly in relation to found and reclaimed objects. She implies the fragile nature of unknown memories by combining salvaged objects such as photographs, letters and postcards – easily damaged items which carry scratches, marks and other physical imprints of their previous owners – with delicate layers of printed text and wallpaper patterns.

For Still Lives, Lauren created a site-specific installation specifically for Fold. Items procured from flea markets and charity shops will be scattered around the space in combination with handwriting from forgotten letters and fragments of domestic patterns. The disjointed positioning of these intensely personal but discarded objects highlight their isolated and fragmented nature – they are triggers to memories which no longer exist.
