Ro Hardaker’s invisible, without bodies.
With deliberate slowness, Hardaker studies haptic configurations and negotiates new processual terms, bodies and sites as they are being realised. Here, leaking and slick with prophecy she fills, holds and empties vessels; testing their capacities to tolerate and producing instances in which language and violence are extracted, then redistributed as intense affective encounters.
Ro Hardaker (She/They) works at the blur between discursive, visual and embodied practices. Addressing access as the ability to enter or as an outburst of emotion, their practice is emergent, necessarily interdisciplinary and undisciplined. In the absence of their live work they provide texts, conversations, videos and objects which layer or complicate other ways of viewing their work. From 2019-2021 they were an Associate Artist at The Tetley (UK) and have presented work nationally and internationally at The Leeds Playhouse (UK), Tate Modern (UK), The Arnolfini (UK), Queer City Cinema and Performatorium (CA), Uppsala Konst Museum (SE), PAGE: Assembly (FR), SPILL Festival of Performance 2014 and 2015 (UK) and ] performance s p a c e [ (UK).
CLAYground pilot series (August- October 2021) was made possible with support from Leeds Inspired to address the lack of non-hierarchical spaces for live artists and those interested in artworks to co-exist and test things out.
