Digital Window Gallery Exhibition
Maria Ansell is our Open Source #06 artist with her series ’89’, which approaches the credibility of memory in the photographic image – a project informed by her grandfather’s recent Alzheimer’s diagnosis, which challenged Maria’s relationship with image making and archiving sentimental moments.
The photographs project an idealised and nostalgic version of a relationship, from someone pre-emptively mourning family loss.
Open Source is part of our responsive programme, offering our on and offline resources for others to use. There is no theme and no limit to number of submissions, but we encourage projects that engage with themes explored in our exhibitions. The aim of the platform is to make lesser-known artists more visible.
