Infems Projects - collaborations
InFems x Warchild 2023
InFems is proud to announce that we are art advisors to Warchild UK , a charity that works to heal the wounds you cannot see.
InFems is wokring together with War Child on a Project which will be launched later this year. War Child is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades, we’ve been driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.
We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and support them long after the cameras have gone. We deliver life-changing services and support in communities affected by conflicts to keep children safe and help them to heal and learn for the chance of a better future.

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.”
