Moyra Davey is an artist and a writer. Throughout her career, Davey’s work in photography, video, and writing has explored fragments of daily life and the effects of time. Dust, old diaries, a pile of newspapers, a collection of LPs, five years’ worth of empty liquor bottles—Davey’s work considers these banal, forgotten artifacts, revealing their inherent, quiet beauty and sense of melancholy. In the rush of the moment, Davey slows things down, avoiding spectacle, focusing on process and change. Her work was included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial.
