Amy Haigh is a multimedia artist and researcher focusing on ecology in all forms, with a key focus on the field of anthrozoology. From her studio in Peckham (SE London), she uses a range of media to create sculpture and installation work to both present ︎ unearth strange ecological narratives—building cultural frameworks across species boundaries.
Her work often exists in the realm of fiction or fantasy, imagining anthrozoological futures and speculative realities through uncanny artefacts and landscapes. She plays with the notion of the nonsensical and in this way her work attempts to awaken alternate ways of thinking and dreaming. She prefers that her work is accessible and presented in public space, with priority given to community-led projects.
Amy received an M.A. in Information Experience Design from the Royal College of Art in 2019, prior to this she worked as an Environmental Graphic Designer and researcher specialising in exhibition design, with a B.A. (Hons) in Graphic Design from University of the Arts London. She has worked with animals professionally and completed technical training in animal care.
