Ruth Caig

Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme

Ruth Caig is an artist and designer. Her paintings explore relationships between location, built environment and spectator.

During Ruth’s Acme residency, she worked on large-scale site-specific paintings that were installed in response to various public sites in East London, including Public Participation, E15, London (2012); Nowhere places of perceived importance, E15, London (2011); Making good, Making do, Market Estate project, London (2010) and Better or worse Solutions DepfordX : Flux, London (2009). Ruth founded her own company, StitchKits Crafts, in 2011.

Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme
Based on the model of the Fire Station programme, the Sugarhouse Work/Live Residency Programme was designed in response to the lack of affordable space in London for artists to work and live in. The project was developed in partnership with Solon Co-operative Housing Services and the Boss Group and received funding from the Housing Corporation and Stratford Development Partnership.
