Haverthorn V.4.1 // Magasine collaboration, Spring 2018 with Camilla Nelson

Camilla Nelson

Haverthorn magazine is a literary magasine edited by Iris Colomb and Andrew Wells. Each magasine has a section that teams artists with poets in collaborations. I had the pleasure of responding to Camilla Nelson's existing work "Magnolia" and she created "Scorn Dolly" as inspired by my work "Closing the borders opened the gates of hell" photographed by Sebastian Trustman.

In order to get closer to Camilla Nelson's poem which seemed to me to express a harrowing and fragmented desire of something you do not really want, I worked with my flatmate to explore our fears concerning (although not necessarily related to) our desires for the future. The outcome involved envisaging a landscape surrounding the female form with abstract floral shapes of future pressures built from: self, society, family.
