Research Summary

Karin Ruggaber makes sculpture as well as producing artist's books. She works with a range of different media considering materials in relation to their dynamic and association with particular activities, or representational function. Recent works include relief sculptures based on an invented and self-generating vocabulary of form and materiality, using materials such as concrete, plaster, fabric and wood. Coming out of a studio-based practice the work centres on ideas around figuration, ornamentation, aspects of touch and the relationship to architectural scale; core interests are a sensory experience with architecture, looking at the imaginary and intangible components of perceived values and their translation into public space. Principles of ordering and layering are set against the roughness and imprecision of material and surface. Ideas around architecture as manifestation of aspects of territory - as something that holds rather than can be held - form part of the wider project and narrative for the work.

Current research project: Rock Room Project

The Rock Room Project is a research and exhibition project I have set up in 2013 in collaboration with the Department of UCL Earth Sciences and UCL Museums. Working with the neighbouring context of Earth Sciences generates opportunities and questions which lie on the edge of exhibition making, looking at matter, materiality and form, as well as the fantasies surrounding the disciplines. The core of the project until 2016 was an annual 1-day pop up exhibition at the UCL Rock Room. This revolves around attempts to find new forms of exhibition making, to look at the potential of collaboration and of thinking about material and sculpture through all the senses. We explore spaces that represent other forms of logic, beliefs, knowledge and disciplines such as geology, astrophysics, or applied art. Features and events include annual UCL Earth Sciences Laboratory tours to the Rock Physics, Micropaleontology and Geochemistry Laboratories, the UCL Regional Planetary Image Facility, the UCL Marine Engineering wave machine and the Anechoic Chamber. A 1-day Sculpture Park was held at the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory in Surrey in March 2015 and June 2016. A workshop and symposium on "Poison" was held at the UCL Rock Room in 2016, involving 1980s perfume ads, a geochemist, a perfumer, an Anti-Brexit campaign as well as a 16th century field surgeon's manual courtesy of UCL Special Collections.

Events for 2016/17 included a workshop with a bespoke perfumer on the relationship between the sense of smell and the sense of touch, a talk by an animal geographer, and an experiment in the UCL Ice Physics Laboratory, set at minus 15 degrees.

In 2018 we received a UCL Dean’s Strategic Fund Award for a series of workshops on "Animal Perspective". Events include a Scent and Atmosphere workshop in the UCL Anechoic Chamber, a workshop on movement with choreographer Siobhan Davies, as well as working with the presence of dogs.

Simon Ling and Karin Ruggaber
2023 - greengrassi, London

Two person exhibition with Simon Ling at greengrassi, London. Press release: An edit of 10 photographs from a series 75 taken in twelve locations across Italy is included in this exhibition. In 2022 I received a Library and Archive Research Award from the British School at Rome to study the collection of Dora and Agnes Bulwer in Rome. The Bulwer sisters travelled around Italy and the Mediterranean with a large format plate camera between 1890 and around 1930. They left 1200 photographic prints and 890 nitrate negatives to the British School at Rome. I made a proposal to study their archive by focussing on water and fountains in their photographs in relation to my sculpture. I wanted to get a sense of their journeys and of discovering these structures. I started searching for the sites of various fountains and visited some of the places in their photographs in April 2022. My photographs at these locations are shot with a low-tech 1980s Lubitel medium format camera. I only processed the films once back in London.

Online presentation of 'Clips and Brooches', 2021

2020 - CCA Andratx, Spain

ELEMENTUM is an international group exhibition specifically created for the CCA Gallery.

SupaStore Academy
2020 - Nida Art Colony, Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania

SupaStore Academy, a permanent installation by the artist Sarah Staton at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts, opens on 17 July 2020.
SupaStore is a lively trading platform for artists and ideas, a mutable pop up that presents small artwork, multiples, and editions from a diverse selection of artists. The first SupaStore opened in 1993 in London and was repeated several times throughout the decade. As installations, functioning as working retail stores for artist-made multiples, the SupaStore series both facilitated exchange, referred to, and commented ironically on the increasing marketing of creativity. Commercialisation of public space, public spaces formed by infrastructure and architecture for commerce, artists communities, networks, and digitalisation of trade and exchange have been the topics recurring in Staton’s project since the 90s.

Quiz 2
2016 - MUDAM, Musée D'Art Moderne Luxembourg

QUIZ 2, SUR UNE IDÉE DE ROBERT STADLER, curated by Robert Stadler and Alexis Vaillant. The objects gathered together for the exhibition defy pre-established categories such as sculpture, product, furniture, etc. They intrigue us, leaving us perplexed and, above all, incite great freedom in terms of apprehending and appreciating them. These barely-recognisable and stimulating things go beyond the usual “art or design?” or “art and design?” formulas, rendering the question of the status of objects obsolete and aiming to explore the state of things today through their incongruous, astonishing or falsely recognizable forms.

the exhibition is dedicated to the most recent phase in the history of artists’ books. these are works of art that borrow the format and the particular modes of distribution and consumption of the book; they are not books replicating works of art, but works of art that exist exclusively through the format of the book.
all the books selected are either self-published or participate in a minor economy of small independent publishers. their modes of production and circulation, as well as the conditions under which they are housed and experienced, create and reinforce their content.

The exhibition addresses the book as a particular technology, and in its collective state of the private collection, reading room or library, as a social machine – registering social and personal histories, and articulating structures of knowledge and value through the relations between its parts.

Virtually every significant artistic movement since the Second World War is touched on in this major exhibition drawn from The Arts Council’s own national collection, curated by Nottingham Contemporary’s Director Alex Farquharson. Spanning seven decades of art made in Britain, Somewhat Abstract shows the work of 70 artists, eight of them Turner Prize winners.

Abstract art is the exhibition’s starting point. Yet as its title suggests most of the art works are near-abstract, rather than truly abstract. They are works in which the world has undergone a transformation. The image has lost its definition to become something else, while still retaining a sense of where it came from.

Call me on Sunday

CALL ME ON SUNDAY is the second of several parts of the long-term series CCC (curators collectors collaborations) initiated by Krinzinger Gallery - a starting point for the interconnection of international collectors and curators.
Inspired by the consequent attitudes of the collectors Valeria Napoleone (London) and Alexia Stuefer (Vienna), who limit their collections to artworks by female artists, CALL ME ON SUNDAY focuses on 77 artistic positions by female artists. The Krinzinger Projekte’s exhibitions spaces therefore display oeuvres of international artists in private collections and arranges them in a dramaturgically intertwined setting.

The exhibition also makes references to the legendary show “Eccentric Abstraction” by US-American curator and critic Lucy Lippard, that took place in New York in 1966 and - deviating from what the title would suggest - addressed the subjects of strong, autonomous, female corporeality and lifestyle.

Of and For
2014 - The Bank, Central House, London

Group exhibition curated by Camilla Wilson and Mary Maclean. With Peter Fillingham, Dave Hanger, Mary Maclean, Jess Macneil, Caroline McCarthy, Karin Ruggaber, Camilla Wilson, Eleanor J Wright, Emily Wolfe.

Inhabited space, both private and public, is the subject of this exhibition. It suggests that the experience of interior and exterior architectural space is expressed by the part rather than the whole, the fragment rather than a totality. The fragment is asymmetrical, dynamic, occupying a moment of internalised attention, as the agent of an unresolved narrative.
