Shamica Ruddock

I am filmmaker and multimedia artist working predominantly with sound, text and live projections. I also have a background in cultural heritage, specifically archives, collections and community engagement. I allow much of this experience to guide my artistic practice. I am interested in interrogating memory, the legacies we inherit and our tools for cultural preservation. Often working collaboratively, I am passionate about exploring the dynamics of cultural hybridity and our understanding of emotion as a tool for participation. Interested in processes of healing and emotional emancipation for marginalised bodies, I see cultural and artistic methods of production as a form of catharsis and as a process of dialogue and reconciliation.
