Camille is a visual artist. In 2014, she founded LIVE WILD, a fictive collective and large-scale performance around the theme of the artist's identity. Aiming to offer a unique visual proposition fueled by seven fictive artists working with collage, gif, videos and photography, they bond over shared artistic longings and similar aesthetic tastes, thriving on each artist’s personal signature. Bringing six countries together, LIVE WILD also brings very eclectic yet complementary backgrounds in harmony.
Anna is a writer of prose poetry. In 2014 she co-founded with Camille Orpheus Standing Alone, a self-publishing, non-profit organisation. Their publications offer introspective and contemplative content, presenting photography, writing, collages. Orpheus Standing Alone wishes to create unique, ever-changing objects, by both their shape and content. orpheusstandingalone.com
Camille and Anna are both self-taught. Sharing the same influences in their works and being interested in such similar themes, it soon became patently obvious they wanted to work alongside each other. Their work is available for purchase in local, independent bookshops in London such as The Tate Modern Bookshop and The ICA Bookshop but can also be found all over the world – Paris, LA, NY and Tokyo.
