Ignite Collective

Ignite Collective

Ana Escobar, Natalie Koffman, Barbara Proschak, Ilenia Voleri

The Ignite Coolective was created with the aim of reflecting on the historical and contemporary experience of violence against women. The tourism arising from the Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 is the starting point for a series of works that investigate the glamorisation and invisibility of violence against women.

Outside the collective, we are all practicing artists exploring a range of subjects within a multi-media frameworks: photography, sculpture, live performance, film and storytelling. Also our practices extend to the areas of art curating, publishing, and in the fields of social sculpture and connective practices.

We have exhibited widely between us and have shown this work at The Womens Library and South Bank University.

Who is your shero and why? and How does the work you are presenting exemplify the theme of ‘sheroes’?

Our Sheroes are all the women whose lives have been affected by violence / the disappeared / the victims of murder / the victims of war.

Making these women visible.
