Artist in Residency – Tulle Ruth

Tulle Ruth lives and works in Norway. Her practice can be described as sculpture in a very broad sense. She has her artistic training from Sweden, Norway, Canada and Denmark and has exhibited in many places in Norway and abroad.

Her sculptures are often mobile and located at more or less unknown sites in public spaces and in nature. The artist is mostly concerned with communication, ecology and feminism. Out from the personal, domestic and everyday life, Tulle Ruth asks questions about life and society surrounding her. Her artistic platform was shaped through the extended project Speaking Mountains which enabled the 7 famous mountains surrounding Bergen to speak and create stories. In an investigating and experimenting manner, “high and low” techniques were integrated. Tulle Ruth always works independently from added energy instead of using sun and wind power. Her art is often infused with humour.
