Brighton Photo Fringe OPEN16 Solo

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)

Description

Dana Ariel was selected as the Brighton Photo Fringe OPEN16 solo artist by a panel of judges from an international open call via LensCulture. The OPEN16 solo exhibition will take place at Phoenix Brighton 1-30 October and is sponsored by our print partner Metro Imaging.

Dana Ariel uses photography, printmaking, video and drawing to explore her interest in language, seeing, and constructions of identity and memory. Her landscape photographs portray traces of past activities telling a story of political erasure and displacement. She is currently a PhD student at Slade School of Fine Art, UCL.

OPEN16 was selected by Steve Macleod, (Director, Metro Imaging Ltd), Christiane Monarchi, (Editor, Photomonitor), and Sarah Pickering, (Artist, Teaching Fellow in Photography at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, and BPF OPEN08 winner)

“Dana Ariel was selected as her quiet but powerful landscape work and accomplished printmaking manages to articulate ideas of personal narrative and the slipperiness of naming and place in relation to identity. This resonates with the political issues that we are encountering in sharp relief post referendum”. Sarah Pickering (Teaching Fellow in Photography at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, and BPF OPEN08 winner)
