Holding Space Series – Artist Feature: Ronnie Clarke
Visit LOMAA’s Instagram page from Monday, November 16 to Saturday, November 21, 2020 to hear and see the new work “soundscape” by Ronnie Clarke.
Ronnie Clarke is a Black, queer and Canadian emerging artist living and working in Toronto, Ontario. Her work blends elements of choreography, dance, movement, collaboration, video and installation. She is interested in how language manifests, becomes translated and is mediated in the digital age. With an interest in the poetics of digital gestures, spaces, and interfaces, she often uses movement to investigate how technology plays a role in our interactions with others. She holds a BFA from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.
Clarke has performed and exhibited professionally at a number galleries and performance venues such as Forest City Gallery (London), Artlab Gallery (London), Trinity Square Video (Toronto), and Xpace Cultural Centre (Toronto). Recent projects include a commissioned online performance for Artcite Inc. (Windsor, 2020) and an online residency at the 7th Annual Roundtable Residency (Toronto, 2019).
