Ruby Tingle will present her open studio as an installation, where visitors can enter the space to listen to and observe the artist situated amongst her selected works, collected objects and live animals in a performance based upon her latest album -"No Such Thing".
The salamander's ability to regenerate body parts makes it a real-life 'Hydra'; this idea has informed these new songs, which express her own period of self-rescue and regeneration after trauma. Split into two halves, the album documents the artist’s processes of recovery and transformation over the past eight years, drawing from themes of duplexity, the monstrous and the changing city around us, all of which have assisted in her recuperation.
This portrait will sit between the living and the tableau, the artist and her pets placed in a scene inspired by the album. The performance will draw in elements of the artists' personal life and fascinations, providing visitors with a deeper insight and context into her working practice. Limited copies of ‘No Such Thing will be available to buy from PAPER Gallery and a selected song will be performed live in the courtyard during the evening.
