Richard Healy

Fire Station Residency

Richard Healy's work explores the roles of function and materiality through sculpture, installation and video. Often embodied through simulations of design his work frequently deploys digital landscapes as a means to examine notions of narrative space.

A graduate of the Royal College of Art he has exhibited widely in the UK and throughout Europe. Selected exhibitions include Outside the Red House, Marian Cramer, Amsterdam (2015); The Best Tailor in Town, Hunt Kastner, Prague (2015); On the Devolution of Culture, Rob Tufnell, London (2014); Last Seen Entering the Biltmore, South London Gallery, London (2014); I love you Me either, Project Native Informant, London (2014).

Fire Station Residency 2015-2020

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2015-2020 residents were selected by former Acme Residency and Projects Manager Julia Lancaster, and artists and former Fire Station residents Erika Tan and Ben Cove.
