Camille Laddawan — 'Pia' Limited Edition Beaded Necklace, 2023
A limited edition beaded necklaces, featuring unique gold, silver and glass beads.
Beading artist Camille Laddawan weaves seed beads on looms with a visual language system she has developed called ‘Tone Code’. 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. Laddawan’s process is rhythmic, taking long periods of focus to count and thread, balancing the tension that draws each individual bead together. Laddawan holds a Bachelor of Visual Communication from Monash University and a Master of Art Therapy from La Trobe University.
