David Copeland – 2020 Futures Artist

This fantastic opportunity will help me achieve my future goals; a possible PHD, teaching, exhibiting internationally and getting my work published. This will be the perfect chance to see how my work is perceived outside the context of the University, and I believe that Belfast Exposed is the perfect place to achieve this.

Samantha Johnston – 2020 Futures Artist

It can be intense and sometimes feels like you are on your own in trying to develop your practice and to have this support network through Future Artists will be vital to my practice and myself. I have so much work and energy to give and I am excited to see how my research and work will progress.

Milo Lethorn – 2020 Futures Artist

Being awarded a place on the Futures programme represents a lot to me not simply for the various immediate benefits that it offers but also the organisation behind it. Belfast Exposed’s approach to photography, as a medium for reflection, information and cultural contribution, is something that I recognise and look forward to aligning myself with.

Manon Ouimet – 2020 Futures Artist

I am delighted to be awarded a position on the Future Artists programme. My work is about the evolution of relationships between subject and observer, challenging the idea of the audience, evolving our understanding of the gaze and its transformative power, using photography as a therapeutic tool…”

Graeme McCormick – 2020 Futures Artist

Joining the list of Futures Artists is both a humbling and inspiring experience. As my inspiration often emerges from the collaboration and conversations with others, I hope that being part of the ‘Belfast Exposed Futures’ programme will help me to create emotionally resonating narratives.

Ioanna Sakellaraki – 2020 Futures Artist

I see ‘Futures Artists’ as an ambitious initiative for facilitating part of my photographic journey throughout the next 12 months. I look forward to working with leading experts and curators in the industry while growing as a photographer.


PORTFOLIO

Natasha Longridge – Volunteer

“The art of preservation and interpretation that a photograph holds has always drew me in, even glancing through old images that are not of my own; I’ve always questioned the story behind them.”


PORTFOLIO

Ben Malcolmson – Futures Artist

“His practice further deals with the communication of the landscape, looking at the familiar and psychological complexities of the self with performative-based elements as an undertone.”


PORTFOLIO

Linda Conroy – Futures Artist

“Her interests lie in the psychology of the human experience with a particular curiosity for how we form objects, traditions, beliefs and value systems.”


PORTFOLIO

Mike Bors – Futures Artist

“His work is mostly autobiographical and uses images from the family album and newly made photographs. Mike’s practice uses personal narratives to speak about broader social issues.”


PORTFOLIO

Jane Cummins

“The intention is to uncover the ambivalence of the self and awaken a psychological reaction to help her process and move forward from difficult or uncertain periods in her life.”


PORTFOLIO

Jacqueline Douglas – Futures Artist

“By focusing on the impacting details within second-hand photographs, the work deconstructs the original images through the use of cropping and manipulation.”


PORTFOLIO

Aisling McCoy – Futures Artist

“She’s particularly interested in the ideological aspect of inhabitation and the role of both architecture and photography in constructing the ideal.”


PORTFOLIO

Yvette Monahan – Futures Artist

“In recent years, Yvette’s practice has changed from looking at stories held in the landscape to looking at stories held within. Her current practice looks to further her understanding of three main ideas, namely intuition, transcendence, and narrative.”


PORTFOLIO

Andrew Rankin – Futures Artist

“Andrew’s practice is guided by everyday life and how we use escapism within it. He finds it intriguing how escapism often seems to bridge a gap between the real and ideal self, liberating our minds and perceptions of our self for brief periods.”


PORTFOLIO

Ruby Wallis – Futures Artist

“She often blurs the line between fiction and reality, public and private, drawing on subjective experiences and relationships.”


PORTFOLIO

Peter Evers – Futures Artist

“Peter’s work attempts to highlight our misplaced trust in systems and our conventional thinking about of our lived experience. Our shared delusions of identity and progress.”


PORTFOLIO

Jill Quigley – Futures Artist

“She finds it fascinating to investigate, and then to challenge, her own and others’ notions about the places they encounter.”


PORTFOLIO

Jan McCullough – Futures Artist

“She is interested in the role photography plays in the construction and expression of individual and collective identities in contemporary society.”
