Madeleine Snowdon is a Midlands-based artist working primarily through photography and mixed media. Her work is interested in the memory of space, in local histories retold through architecture and traces found in urban environments. Taking cues from psychogeography, her work aims to reveal and celebrate forgotten, lost or overlooked spaces.
Madeleine recently won Shoot Festival 2022's Artist Development Award for her Afterimages series exhibited at the festival's visual arts exhibition (more info here) at the Burbridge Gallery, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.
This year, Madeleine has also co-curated the exhibition Farm City at Arcadia Gallery, Coventry, creating a new series of work entitled Allotments for this project.
Her work can also be found on display at the SYDNI Centre in Leamington Spa, commissioned by Coventry Artspace for Artist On My Street (Round 2). More information on Artist On My Street can be found here on the Coventry Artspace website and here on the Coventry UK City of Culture website.
The Afterimages series was originally made in conjunction with the Then & Now: Arts at Warwick project.
Read more about this project in an article written by Madeleine Snowdon for Exchanges, an interdisciplinary research journal published by the University of Warwick, available here.
The Afterimages series received 'Commended' in the 2020 Digital Arts Lab Showcase, found here.
