Ruth Marsh is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist of settler ancestry based out of Kjipuktuk,(Halifax, NS, Canada) whose practice employs an absurdist approach which seeks to queer the intersections between DIY culture, art practice and science fact/fiction/fabulation to address memory, healing, cybernetic enhancement and responsive mutation both in bodies and environments.

She approaches her practice from a perspective which is part mad scientist and part devoted repair technician. Through processes which are inherently labour intensive, repetitive and painstaking; she is interested in playfully exploring the ways in which modalities of labour can translate into a study of enacted care and hopeful mourning.

I had a blast talking to Ruth.
