Camille Cargill

09 June 2018–30 June 2018

Opening Friday 8 June 2018

Gentle, soft womanhood gently fights violently secured bolts. Light weighted paper peels away from the aggressive masculine force that contains it. Mother of all: Venus is born and must be covered – quick.

A veil censors what of the female form is not suitable for public viewing and discourse. Such drapery hides the most intimate and uniting human facets of what it means to be a woman; unique to no one, and common to all: what is natural and what is normal? Behind a veil, tangible or not, all women are to hide.

Camille was the 2017 recipient of the KINGS Monash Graduation Prize supported by the City of Melbourne.

She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Monash University in 2017 and was awarded the KINGS Artist-Run Initiative Award and 5 Press Art Award for her graduate work. Camille creates work that interrogates the visual and verbal language of, about and used against the female unit. Her work questions the consumption and creation of the feminine as she’s translated into and across visual culture throughout time.
