Camille Laddawan — Three, Two, One 2022
'Three, Two, One' is about the process of starting a family. The writing within the work (dotted like lines), transcribed into Tone Code, says 'CFTR, USH2A, SACS, GBE1, HBB' and 'negative'. These are the genetic recessive carrier results that my partner, myself and our donor received whilst I was beading this artwork. It is a meditation on the trust and love required between three people, for two people to create one child.
Camille creates delicate beading works inscribed with fragments of text. To create her compositions, she translates chosen words and phrases into Tone Code. This visual code allows her to embed ideas within her beading work. Camille draws on methods of institutional analysis to explore socio-political concerns that intersect with personal and familial experiences. Her work connects philosophical ideas of language and symbolism, with aesthetics, and the hands-on, technical aspects of bead work. Her process is rhythmic, taking long periods of focus to count and thread, balancing the tension that draws each individual bead together.
