ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Ruth is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist of settler ancestry based out of Kjipuktuk,(Halifax, NS, Canada). Her practice employs an absurdist approach which seeks to queer the intersections between DIY culture, art making, and science fact/fiction/fabulation to address memory, healing, and cybernetic interconnection in both bodies and environments. She approaches her practice from a perspective which is part mad scientist and part devoted repair technician and through processes which are inherently labour intensive, repetitive, and painstaking. She is interested in playfully exploring the ways in which modalities of labour can translate into a study of both enacted care and hopeful mourning.
