Born 1980, Aberdeen, lives and works in London.
Working in print, performance and installation, Ruth Ewan’s practice begins in a period of independent research and results in conceptually led but socially realised projects. She is interested in creating an altered state of historical or cultural engagement for the viewer, often considering overlooked or invisible threads of radical histories, their failings and potentials.
