Shamica Ruddock works across moving image, installation, sound, text and live projections. Current themes of interest include Afro-Caribbean orality, puppetry, masquerade and folk storytelling practices, alongside speculative fictions and futurisms. Accounts of marronage, resistance and fugitivity within the Caribbean also provide core research anchors and departure points.
Shamica’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including with Abandon Normal Devices, Barbican, South London Gallery, CRATE Margate, Durham Gallery, Ontario and Treasure Hill Artist’s Village, Taiwan. Shamica’s film The Island is No Home was also selected for New Contemporaries 2020.
