Who Are You? Do You Even Go Here?

Profile Gallery offers early career artists, curators, and art lovers a digital art network - a virtual space to connect, share and discuss the process of art in the digital age.

Made possible by our network of early career creatives, we curate monthly exhibitions; provide guest residencies; offer valuable digital experience; and stimulate creativity within and beyond the UK’s virtual art scene.

As early career creatives, the PG team strives for complete transparency. The site offers you unfiltered Insights into our process of curating, critiquing, managing and thinking.

The Profile Community would be nothing without your involvement. Have you got something to say for Insights? Dm us. Do you have something to add to the SPACE? Submit. Do you want to be a part of the growing PG team? Slide in.

But Why Now?

Two things. 2020 has been a big year for digital platforms. But 2020 has been a bad year for the arts and creative industries. PG aims to find creative solutions to the 2020 madness; to balance the scales between the digital and art. Read about our initiative here (LINK to Insights intro piece) Positive vibes only.

Samantha Watson
24, London
she/her

Through Samantha's representation of digital realms within her practice, incorporating ethereal landscapes and avatars, the artist aims to interrogate how the digital age encourages escapism. The seductive fantasy of living in a digital realm, where a person can communicate themselves in any way they want, can tempt excessive amounts of time being spent in digital worlds rather than the physical world. With the contribution of Covid-19, this escapism has been exacerbated, blurring the lines between the virtual and the physical.

Enorê
University of Goldsmiths Graduate 2020, MFA Fine Arts
They/them

Enorê is an artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Their work contemplates the role of digital technologies in shaping visibilities by means of creating automated image, capturing bots and algorithms. Through this the artist seeks to expose how visibility and reproduction relate to the reinforcement of power structures, especially when it comes to identities that have been historically marginalised. Enorê works with programming languages, painting, drawing, printmaking; and more recently 3D scanning and augmented reality.

After graduating from BA Fine Art with Museum and Gallery Studies, she has continued on an MA at the University of Leeds. Currently she is working with Profile Gallery as an Assistant curator.

Elias Mendel
22, Hackney-born (half-English, half South-African, German Jewish), Manchester University Graduate 2020
He/him

Elias is a visual artist, interested in identity, community, how they inform our personal / collective lives, and the activism that emerges from that - often in its rawest form. The artist is currently fascinated by the way in which wider issues in the world, particularly for the generation growing up in the socially and politically fragmented reality of 2020, infiltrate our every-day lives. His practice incorporates a variety of artistic mediums, including curation, exhibition production, archival engagement, photography, writing, and experimental cinema. Eschewing the conventional narrative rules of filmmaking, he has been experimenting with his own visual language; developing a narrative structure of often quick cut-together sequences, an evolving way of communicating his own ontology.

Daniel Famiyeh
21, London/York, filmmaker, photographer, and engineer; studying Electrical Engineering at the University of York
He/him

Daniel's interest in filmmaking has complemented his studies in photography at college and engineering at uni. The films created during uni document beautiful places, time spent with friends, and generally have a lo-fi/retro aesthetic reminiscent of ‘home movies’ (a practice that has unfortunately disappeared from our everyday). Daniel works in the moment, capturing the footage on his phone. This freedom allows him to capture intimate moments of clarity and emotion.

Ben Dawson
22, London (Hackney Wick), Kingston University Fine Art Graduate 2020
He/him

Ben is a queer, working class artist. His primary practice explores how our physical and digital spaces overlap. He situates his work between digital film making, printed matter and physical matter (which includes the physical matter of the human body). The artist questions what exists “between real and virtual in the age of the internet omnipresence,” which enables him to challenge what it means to create using digital software.
