Ruth Proctor works across a number of mediums – from performance to sculpture, drawing to installation.  Common to all her artworks are themes of time and space.  Proctor trained as an ice-skater, and this can be sensed in the works she now creates: of performance and spectacle, action and reaction, repetition and capturing the fleeting moment.

Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth Proctor has since exhibited both nationally and internationally. UEA is delighted to play host to Falling Backwards, Proctor’s first exhibition within East Anglia.

In 2012 she exhibited If the sky falls at the Whitechapel Gallery, London and Weight of Air at Ham House, Richmond-upon-Thames. These projects, along with Falling Backwards, draw upon Proctor’s interest in the rethinking of the physical and temporal whilst also considering the legacy of modernism.
