Heather Kapplow is a self-trained conceptual artist and writer currently based in Boston, MA. She creates engagement experiences that elicit unexpected intimacies using objects, alternative interpretations of existing environments, installation, performance, writing, audio and video. Her work has received government and private grants and has been included in galleries, film and performance festivals in the US and internationally.
Heather made and installed Going, a series of signs, along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, undermining assumptions of authority we give to signage. The signs encourage trail-goers to consider the trail in a different way.
