Healy and Cordeiro’s practice reflects a preoccupation with the dynamics of global mobility—the networks, standards and financial systems that enable and restrict the movement of people and goods in the modern era. Creating tensions between order and disorder, their works are shaped by traditional sculptural concerns such as mass, form and scale; however they also incorporate the expressive potential of motion.

The duo have held solo exhibitions at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin 2006, The Art Gallery of New South Wales 2007, La bf15, Lyon 2009, The Corcoran Gallery, Washington DC 2011 and a survey exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney 2012.

Their work has been included in numerous exhibitions in Belgium, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, Taiwan, the UK and the USA.

Healy and Cordeiro’s installation Life Spanwas part of the Australian representation at the 53rd Venice Biennale. They also took park in the 5th Auckland Triennale, curated by Hou Hanru. Their new work Mondo Futuro was included in the 2018 Australian Biennale. Also within 2018, the City of Sydney commissioned their new public work Cloud Nation which is located in the Green Square Library Tower.

Our art practice highlights the residual, revealing what is usually covered up.

We focus on the physical stuff of this world, mass production and our throwaway culture. While navigating a world composed of complex systems we find these systems often work antagonistically when they come into contact with each other. We are interested in the slippages that which occur when this happens. It is very exciting to connect with other like-minded folk through the Shadow Places Network. We are eager to learn more from other artists, academics and activists that are on the same path that we find ourselves.
