Ruby Tingle

Ruby collaborated with Venture Arts artist Joe Mills to create their piece Flora Victorious, a multi sensory performance using movement, textiles, live flowers, sound, light and animation.

Ruby Tingle is an award winning audiovisual artist and performer represented by No Such Thing Records and PAPER Gallery. Her practice is concerned with the reconstruction of familiar forms and presenting the extraordinary as authentic. Expanded collage spans performance, installation, sound, work on paper and interventions with museum collections. A fascination with water, wetlands habitat and herpetology roots her material and conceptual investigation, with an aim to present unnatural histories, dreamworlds and new myths which blur the lines between science and cryptozoology. Tingle’s music mixes elements of natural sound, high range celestial vocals and electronica to produce romantic and dreamy, experimental ‘music from the swamp’.

For their collaborative piece, Flora Victorious, Ruby and Joe Mills created a multi sensory performance using movement, textiles, live flowers, sound, light and animation. Drawing on both artists’ passion for nature, fashion and fairytales, this work temporarily transforms its space into a mesmeric dreamland, where the audience slowly become immersed into the performance via spontaneous floral ‘offerings’ from the artists. Flora Victorious has been exhibited at Venture Arts, Venice Biennale 2022 and Longsight Art Space.
