Shamica Ruddock


Shamica Ruddock is an artist often found working between sound and moving image. Shamica’s current research concerns sound cultures and Black sonic modalities. Approaching sound as a site for knowledge production, she considers the ways Afro-diasporas emerge through sound. She is particularly interested in how Black technosonic production functions as a form of narrativising and worldmaking. Maroon histories, fugitivity and Black temporal entanglements have also proved resonant departure points.

Selected presentations include the Barbican Centre (UK), Treasure Hill Artist Village (TW), Tate Britain (UK), and Aesthetica Short Film Festival (UK). In 2022 Shamica had a solo show with the South London Gallery titled Deciphering a Broken Syntax, producing a 4 track vinyl record of the same name. Residencies include Amant Foundation (US), Black Cultural Archives (UK), Somerset House (UK) and QO2 (BE). In 2021 Shamica was a British Library Eccles Centre Visiting Fellow researching Maroon sound cultures.
