LONDON.- New socially conscious digital art gallery Purslane presents an online exhibition Mnemosyne featuring the work of female and non-binary artists. The exhibition was launched on International Women’s Day on 8 March 2021 in aid of domestic abuse charity Refuge. The group exhibition brings together 14 of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists and rising stars including Daisy Parris, Cecilia Reeve, Eleanor Johnson, Jessie Stevenson, Eimear Roibeard, Hazel Florez, Amy Beager, Salome Wu, Liorah Tchiprout, Ariane Hughes, Nour Saleh, Kate Burling, Venetia Berry and Alma Berrow.

Taking its name from the Greek goddess of memory, Mnemosyne is an exploration of the fundamental aspects of human condition. Inspired by Purslane founder Charlie Siddick’s studies of Jungian theory, myths and archetypes, the new exhibition was curated to draw attention to the pressing issue of domestic abuse which has been on the rise since the beginning of the pandemic. 25 percent of the proceeds are going directly to the charity. Artists Daisy Parris and Alma Berrow’s have also announced that 100 per cent of their sales will be donated to Refuge.

Purslane founder and CEO on Mnemosyne: “I've been deep-diving into myths from all over the world over lockdown. When I discovered the tale of 'Mnemosyne' , the Greek goddess of memory, remembrance and the inventress of language and words, I was instantly intrigued. Such concepts are so integral to human development; I love the idea of women being the keepers of history and stories, but it also felt so fitting for an exhibition theme as art acts as a potent conceptual vessel for honouring memories. I knew I wanted to mark International Women's Month with a special show, so I'm very excited about the line-up of contributing artists. As we're aware of in the UK, domestic abuse has become a distressing side-effect of the pandemic so I'm very proud to be supporting the work of Refuge who offer support to women and children suffering through a variety of forms of domestic abuse.”

Purslane was founded in 2020 to shake up the status quo of the art market and promote socially conscious ways of investing in art while supporting emerging artists and raising awareness around philanthropic causes. The new gallery initiative is the gallery model of the future, disrupting and democratising the institutionalised art market by directing the majority of the proceeds to the artists and philanthropic organisations including The Stephen Lawrence Trust, AKT, Crisis and The Trussell Trust. Purslane have already established themselves as a new power player in the UK art scene with a sold out debut exhibition A DREAM IS NOT A DREAM in July 2020 which raised over £5000 for The Stephen Lawrence Trust.
