Presented by War Child, and conceived, created, and curated by InFems art collective, LOST GIRLS exhibition and fundraiser boldly addresses the profound challenges faced by girls affected by war. Nearly 90 million girls – 1 in 5 globally – are living in conflict zones, with devastating impacts on their health, wellbeing, and future opportunities. Many are exposed to exploitation and abuse, resorting to dangerous means to support their families’ survival. War Child creates safe spaces for children, providing them with opportunities to play, learn, and access psychological support.
LOST GIRLS enables the art world to raise awareness and funds for War Child’s crucial work through a physical exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street and online via Artsy. In a world filled with constant news of war, at a time when the art world is at Frieze and focused on consumerism, LOST GIRLS is an opportunity for collectors to collect important works whilst being philanthropic and making a positive impact on the lives of girls affected by conflict.
InFems’ selection of artists and curators for LOST GIRLS is purposeful, including individuals who have deep and personal connections with refugee communities, PTSD, or come from areas where War Child provides urgent care and support.
Since the predicament of women and girls is not just a “woman’s problem,” InFems elected to invite several male artists to participate, also inverting the typical ratios of male to female artists.

Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf: Fruits and Flies, Mirrors and Veils
In this self-referencial animated image created as part of the Infems collaboration with Carolina Herrera, Fontaine-Wolf reimagines Caravaggio's Narcissus from a feminist perfpective. Fruits and Flies, Mirrors and Veils mixes vanitas symbols old and new to create a modern day Memento Mori; a reminder of the beauty and precariousness of the present moment. A reminder to own your moment and enjoy the here and now before it fades away into darkness.
Roxana Halls: Pulse Points
In Pulse Points we see two women as they advance together, laughing in unison through a night city. They are dressed head to toe in Carolina Herrera. Caught in a momentary glance of collusion, one's head & the other's wrist are tilted in a subtle suggestion: a proffering of their pulse points to one another other as if in expectation of perfume. Fragrance is to be applied upon the heartbeat; theirs beat a rhythm in concert, amplified by the thrum of traffic on the rain dampened road. They are intoxicated by the freedom afforded them by the night, bathed as they are in the neon glow of street lights and the unseen, and unheeded, signs.
Marie-Anne Mancio: Chameleon
Two strangers on a New York city roof in the summer of 2001. As the colours and sounds of a night sky slowly brighten to daybreak, this lyrical vignette - inspired by two Carolina Herrera evening dresses - celebrates woman as carefree chameleon.
Wendy Elia: We Are All Goddesses Now
The painter Wendy Elia’s artwork of a contemporary goddess, is made digitally from a combination of 3 of her original oil paintings. Goddess of the moon, eternal youth and the night, she towers over the city of London at dusk. A giant superwoman foretelling of a new dawn for women, celebrating their power and autonomy, the sparking life force emanating from her hand, as she casts a spell of love.
Adelaide Damoah: Flesh of the Goddesses
Dynamic, bold and unapologetically decadent, this one off body print performance piece entitled Flesh of the Goddesses, has been produced in Gold and midnight blue, exclusively for Carolina Herrera. The NFT consists of a video of the performance, an image of the work on a 4m x 2m canvas and content exclusively produced for it. “Covered in shimmering gold paint (symbolic of actual gold - whose value is universally cemented and understood), I engaged in an ultimate expression of self worth by using my body as a living paintbrush to leave gold traces of myself on a midnight blue (Prussian blue) canvas spread out on the floor of a spacious, beautifully lit studio.”
