Moyra Davey

(Canadian, born 1958)

Moyra Davey is a contemporary Canadian artist. Her eclectic body of media art, combining elements of photography, writing, and video, attempts to bridge unseen gaps between culture and the human experience. Her paper work often bears creases and tape marks, as she often sends her work through the mail. Speaking about the invisible lineage of relationships between ideas and lost objects, Davey states that “when something is lost, redirect energy, follow the derivé, the chance and flow of what life tosses us, and make something new instead.” Born in 1958 in Toronto, Canada, she attended Concordia University before receiving a MFA degree from the University of California, San Diego in 1988, shortly after she enrolled in the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her work has been exhibited at MUMOK in Vienna, the Whitney Biennial, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and has received numerous awards, such as the 2010 The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award and the 2004 Anonymous Was a Woman award. Currently living and working in New York, NY, Davey has exhibited with Murray Guy gallery in New York and Greengrassi gallery in London, England.
