The 1st Ruthin International Arts Festival, ‘Elsewhere’ at Ruthin, North Wales, UK.

'I understand that it is a big risk for organisers to invite an artist who can promise nothing but potential failure.'

Tomasz Szrama is a performance artist who works with nature, travel, trust and the ever potential of failure.

The inaugural Ruthin International Arts Festival @riaf_rhuthun gladly invites his chaos and together we create in the realm of unknown.

'Get Off The Ground'

Performance Art

Duration: pretty much up to you or 30-60 mins if you really want to know

Time: What will happen will happen when it happens.

Tomasz Szrama (b. 1970 in Poland) graduated in 1998 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland. He has practiced Action Art since 1993 and contributed actively to the development of Finnish Performance Art. Characteristic features of his actions are the active use of spectators and improvisation. Such a strategy embeds his presentations into the tradition of understanding performance art as a process art, where the very moment of creation is essential. His work touches on themes of travel, trust in interpersonal relationships, and the ever present potential for personal failure.

The first edition of Ruthin International Arts Festival, ‘Elsewhere’, will be held from

28 June 2024 to 28 July 2024, at Ruthin, North Wales, UK.

RIAF features an exciting programme of site-responsive artistic experiences expressed across many disciplines and mediums.
