Grounded in sculptural performance and utilising a variety of media and activity, we create live works that challenge conventional perceptions of the everyday. We make wearable sculpture, DIY costume and props working with an anarchistic and feminist approach.
We use visual puns, irony and play to create interventions setting ourselves boundaries and limitations with regards to the body, sexuality and rituals.
We also produce and facilitate participatory projects in partnership with local arts, education and community organisations. Working site specifically, we respond to locations and communities exploring the relationship between media, artist and society.
Ruby Pester and Nadia Rossi have been working together since graduating from Fine Art and Time Based Art in 2008 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. Pester and Rossi currently live and work in Glasgow, with a studio at the Kinning Park Complex, and are part of the artist groups NOW NOW and Fallopé & the Tubes.
