Camille Laddawan

Camille Laddawan

Art Form: Visual Art

Residency Year: 2023

Lives / Works: Wurundjeri Country

Camille Laddawan, b. 1990, is a beading artist who creates beadings inscribed with fragments of text and music notation by way of a visual code.

Camille’s work questions and prompts discussions about how institutions conduct and influence individuals. Through the use of code, her work comments on the nature of institutional language, and the difficulties of navigating it. By drawing on personal experiences of coming into contact with legal, welfare and healthcare bodies, Camille’s work seeks to make these experiences and ways of communication visible.

 

In Residence at Bundanon

Camille will research and develop works for her first solo show, ‘Kite / ว่าว / χαρταετός’. This exhibition will explore origin stories, diaspora and the differences between ancestry and heritage. This body of work seeks to understand the way institutional language influences the stories of individuals. By researching oral stories, family archives, and government records, Camille will examine how culture is maintained, what is translatable, told and re-formed, and what might be lost. While in residence, Camille will develop a series of beaded works, including a beaded kite.

‘Kite / ว่าว  / χαρταετός’ will be exhibited at the Australian Design Centre, Sydney, in December, 2023.
