1st July 2014 – 15th January 2015
Hackney-based Ruth Proctor works across media including drawing, sculpture, film and performance, to playfully explore themes of time, space, and rhythm. She trained initially as an ice-skater, developing an interest in the performer as spectacle as well as the stagecraft of theatre. Her artworks skilfully blend an inquisitiveness of audience experience, with the allusiveness of repetition and capturing a moment, as well as theatrical constructs of sightlines and tableaux.
Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth Proctor has since exhibited nationally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include Was There, Norma Mangione Gallery, Turin, 2014; Falling Backwards, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich, 2013; I’ll be your mirror, Siobhan Davies Studios, London, 2011; and Luck and Protection, Hollybush Gardens, London, 2010. Proctor was selected for the 2012 edition of the Whitechapel Open, and the Drawing Room’s 2013 Drawing Biennial, both London.
