Kerry Phillips was born in Texas, earned an MFA from University of Arizona, and currently works in Miami. Contrary to her family’s wishes, she doesn’t paint pretty pictures. Phillips is an installation artist whose artwork borders on performance and social practice. Her work with found objects is intuitive, often site-specific, and steeped in remembrance and storytelling. She uses common objects in unexpected ways, working collaboratively with viewer-participants to reveal an exchange of value, the importance and limitations of memory, and the vitality of play.Phillips has exhibited and completed residencies in Ohio, Vermont, New York, North Carolina, and internationally in Berlin, Krakow, Mexico, and France. She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including at the Orlando Museum of Art, Locust Projects, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and Bridge Red Projects. Her work is held in the collections of the Orlando Museum of Art, The Girls’ Club, and Mosquera Collections.
