Ruth Proctor uses drawing, installation, film, video and performance to create compositions influenced by modernist and constructivist aesthetics. Her interest in modern choreography and choreographed sports is reflected in her own performances in which the costumes and props play with geometrical forms and coordinated simple movements.
During her residency at Lugar a Dudas, Proctor will research local forms of dance and the history of architecture in Colombia to expand the scope of her formal research to different contexts and exchange critical dialogues with artists living and working under different circumstances.
