Shamica Ruddock - Deciphering a Broken Syntax

Following six months as the eleventh SLG Postgraduate Artist in Residence, Shamica Ruddock, presents an exhibition on the ground floor of the Fire Station. A newly-commissioned installation consists of a sound work housed within a purpose built listening environment.

Visitors can travel through sonic and cosmic worlds via the 30-minute soundscape in this meditative space. Shamica is a research-based artist often working between sound, text and moving image. During the residency, they continued to investigate Black Technopoetics, the relationship between race, technology and sound, looking at the history of Black sound culture through the narratives of sci-fi and spiritualism. A vinyl record including sounds from the installation and inserts that hold contextual cues will be distributed during the exhibition’s run.
