Tangleface Arts is a Bristol-based, multi-disciplinary collective, made up of four creatives. We bring together our varied artistic backgrounds to produce carnivalesque sculpture and costume with an inspired use of sound and music. We lovingly make noisy and absurd interactive artwork for happenings and festivals, thriving within the temporary nature of public events. Our work is versatile in its function, with a great potential for collaboration with other collectives to shift the focus of a project more toward music, theatre, performance, or fine art. We are always looking for new commissions, so please get in contact to discuss what we might be able to do for you!
Pascale Wilson, Artistic Director
Pascale heads up Tangleface Arts, coordinating the team to bring all elements of a creative project together. The aesthetic of Tangleface Arts comes directly from her artistic work in collage, sculpture and costume, and an addiction to all things bright, carnivalesque and absurd. As a freelancer, she collaborates with event production groups, providing immersive décor for a variety of venues and designing promotional material.
Chelsea Moore, Artistic Producer
Chelsea works alongside Pascale in all stages of the creative process, from idea generation right through to the final stages of the aesthetic build. She is also the guru behind Tangleface Arts’ promotional communications, keeping our voice loud and proud on all social media. Chelsea freelances within art departments of creative production agencies, designing and fabricating installations for the film and event industries.
Nick Rodbourne, Technical Producer
Nick is the man to make implausible and absurd builds a reality. He works on projects from the offset, leading all technical aspects, providing the much-needed nuts and bolts to make the interactive work function. Nick freelances within creative build teams for festivals, events, and one-off commissions, working within carpentry, on-site build, artistic installs and event decor.
Ru Robinson, Music Director
Ru has boundless passion for music and sound, supplying all that makes a noise to our builds. If a project needs a sonic character, he devises and produces it alongside the team. As a DJ and producer, his music also reflects the ethos of Tangleface Arts. Ru balances his commitment to our team with a flourishing DJ career and freelance work as a Music Programmer.
