(In) Memoriam: art display by Ignite

Hosted by the LSE Library

Library Education Room, lower ground floor, LSE Library, United Kingdom

(In) Memoriam reflects on the historical and contemporary experience of violence against women taking the tourism arising from the Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 as the starting point for a series of art works that investigate the glamorisation and invisibility of violence against women.              

The Ignite Collective consists of: Ana Escobar, Natalie Koffman, Barbara Proschak, Ilenia Voleri. It was created with the aim of reflecting on the historical and contemporary experience of violence against women.

Ana Escobar is an artist, lecturer and curator working predominantly in the medium of photography. Ana has recently curated the exhibition Sheroes, featuring thirty-nine international artists who highlight hidden female stories. She has exhibited with the London Alternative Photography Collective at Ugly Duck Gallery in London and with the Writing Photographs Collective at the London College of Communication (LCC) gallery space, which culminated with a symposium at Tate Modern in May 2017. In 2017 she graduated from an MA in Photography from LCC, gaining awards including the Parallax photo prize and special mention from Sproxton photo award.  Ana is a member of the Tate photography department, a mentor for students at the London College of Communication Masters Programme in Photography and a lecturer in photography at the London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA).

Natalie Koffman is a multimedia artist working with photography, performance, writing, storytelling, dialogue and film. She has recently exhibited work at Sheroes. She is currently working with Nature Rights, an ongoing participatory art work shown as part of Oxford Green week. Her work considers how to engage with creative processes to affect social and ecological change through participation, social engagement, and direct interventions. In 2010, she graduated from London College of Communication with a degree in Photographic Arts and is completing a Masters in Social Sculpture at Oxford Brookes University.

Barbara Proschak is a German based artist, working with the medium of photography. She studied in Bielefeld, London, Leipzig and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig in 2015.
