NB: Artist Talk med Ruth Gilmour vil foregå på engelsk.
Born in 1990, Ruth Gilmour is a Scottish artist that is based in Denmark. She graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2017 with a BFA (Honors with Distinction), and completed her MFA in 2020 at HDK-Valand. Gilmour has been awarded multiple working and project grants from Statens Kunstfond, shortlisted for the European Prize of Applied Arts and the Talente Award, and had her writing published in Craft Research by Intellect Books. Her work has been selected for the 2023 Danish Biennale of Craft and Design, which will be exhibited at Copenhagen Contemporary this coming autumn.
Gilmour’s artistic practice combines silk and technology to relate vulnerabilities that unfold across personal, environmental and digital landscapes. Through a combination of analogue and digital processes, Gilmour experiments with the deconstruction and reconstruction of material in order to form relations between bodies and worlds. Using silk and other natural materials, she draws from her experiences of chronic illness to reveal embodied knowledge and potential narratives to address environmental loss and impairment. Given silk’s significance in healthcare, Gilmour believes the material holds inherent possibilities and potentials for vulnerable makers and matters.
