"The Great Australian Dream"

"The Great Australian Dream"
Text by Loni Jeffs

Vacant stores, barred rooms, locked cages. Patriarchy secured, and progress halted. Fleshy pink punctuates images of a failed shopping development: safely funded and forever redundant.

Soft pink films offer a closer glimpse of the muzzle like drapery that covers Venus de Milo’s crotch area. An ancient carved veil that brutally, yet gracefully, censors the most intimate and uniting human facets of what it means to be a woman. Eternally rendered distasteful, and forever blockaded from normalization... but at least it’s in Grecian marble.

Venus - an enduring icon around which womanhood is defined: be it as one of the earliest aestheticizations of women, a famous statue or a tacky book filled with dated relationship advice for doomed hetero couples.

An icon, an emblem, a mother, a matriarch, an ideal, a dream, a goddess, an aspiration, a concoction, a fabrication, a fake.

Camille Cargill a multi-disciplinary artist with a gentle lean towards printmaking. She is a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Visual Arts at Monash University; during which she was awarded the KINGS Artist-Run Initiative Award and 5 Press Art Award for her graduate work. Her work interrogates the consumption, creation and presence of the female unit as she’s translated into and across visual and verbal language throughout time. Camille has exhibited work in the PCA Print Commission, Sydney Contemporary, HobART Book Fair and KINGS Artist-Run.
