"Low_res_camera_roll is an exhibition space. Residing online with universally accessible opening hours this space brings the lives of artists to their audiences. Instagram was the platform of choice because of the way people are using it right now. Users feeds are heavily curated and edited. Posts are archived, re-posted and deleted. Usernames are changed; re-evaluated in conjunction with pop culture and trends. For artists, Instagram acts as a portfolio. The casualness of Instagram gives room for artists to share themselves and their thoughts alongside their work. This duality gives a context to the work."

The aim of Babeworld is to divulge into real life issues and demonstrate the organic process of making work. We focus on themes of political and societal identity, such as disability/ accessibility, mental health, sex work, ‘poverty porn’, oversharing- otherwise known as attention-seeking on the internet. By creating an accessible critical framework through formatting and digestible language, we are opening up a new dialogue- an alternative to academic critique and its place in modern society.

Babeworld relies heavily on collaboration and inclusivity. The goal is to create a welcoming and safe space for those who are marginalised, particularly in ways which are not visible, those who are restricted by their class, gender, race, and everything in between. Collective ailments I hear you ask? Well, the short story is: ASD, BPD. We’ll let you guess whose who.
