Spike Island is delighted to announce Ama Dogbe as the recipient of Spike Island Digital Commission for South West-based Artists. Dogbe will produce a new digital commission that will be presented on Spike Island’s website in autumn 2023. Dogbe will use 3D animation and video games as a medium to develop ideas on notions of the self. These will explore her lived experience as part of a diaspora community.
Ama Dogbe is a British-Ghanaian artist whose work engages with a range of personal and societal themes through digital mediums including experimental film, animation and video games. She believes that being self-taught in the use of various software packages offers the opportunity to create experimental results, uninhibited by the conventional use of this software.
She has been commissioned by tiata fahodzi, Watford (2022), selected as a resident artist with BOM, Birmingham (2022), and exhibited with East Bristol Contemporary (2022) and Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester (2021).
