Born in London in 1985, Camilla makes installations, sculptures and ‘sculptural paintings’. She has completed a Foundation at Chelsea College of Art and Design, a Diploma in Directing at the New York Film Academy, a BA Hons in Philosophy and International Relations at Sussex University and a Foundation Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology.


Themes around depth, embodiment and desire are recurrent in my practice. I am interested in a possible containability of/or support for expression in the body and material. I am drawn to the effects of arranging materials and how they describe experience. I try to habitualise a mode of touch to allow my body to merge with a growing body in the work. This can evoke an ambiguity of place through a depth of touch. Luce Irigary speaks of the ‘whole as permeable, yet sealed.’ I use a method of re-configurement to test and describe shifting proximities. The finished embodied work has a consistent ‘otherness’ to it that both approximates a body and is self-sustaining by forming a body of its own.
