Camilla Tønder is a London based artist and costume designer who explores the complex relationship between our digital and physical selves.
Through the practices of drawing, photography and costume making she focuses on the body and examines society’s growing concern about appearance and the impact of social media on the creation of our physical and online identities.
With a background in fashion and textile design, materials have a primary role for her in both the process as well as the finished objects.
Camilla Tønder was born in Denmark in 1988 and currently lives and works in London. She received her MA in Mixed Media; Textiles from the Royal College of Art in 2018 and her BA in Fashion and Textiles from Kolding School of Design in 2013.
Through this, she not only challenges the culture of ‘oversharing’ but also exposes how ‘oversharing’ affects the way others perceive us and the way we perceive ourselves.
