Kelly Ruth

Kelly Ruth is a Textile/New Media artist from Winnipeg, currently living in Edmonton. Most recently she has been activating her textiles and tools through using electronics, sound, and integrating microcontrollers into the foundations of her woven cloth. She has created several bodies of work using fibre, dyeing with plants and weaving, recognizing these as early technologies, and a relationship that humans have had with the land. In her work she is primarily concerned with the interplay between class, economics and ecology. In performance she uses contact microphones and effects pedals on her weaving loom and other fibre related tools. Kelly has a background as a textile dyer/painter for dance, theatre and film companies across Canada, primarily working for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. She performs solo and with an improvisational trio named Civvie. In the past two years she has performed solo at the Vancouver New Music Festival, Handmade Assembly, Forthwith Festival and has exhibited a textile/sound installation as part of Send + Receive. Working with Civvie she has recently performed at Sounds Like Festival, and has opened for an improvisational collaboration between Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois, as well as opening for Merzbow + Balázs Pándi as part of Bend Festival.
