86,062 - The Painkiller Prints

Prints by Zara Carpenter, photographs by Rikard Österlund

A collaborative project showing prints produced using prescribed painkillers. The prints - produced every time Zara took her medication over a 2 month period - is an abstract exploration of chronic illness and the long term use of prescribed medication.

Over 50 prints are compiled in this book with an essay by Alexander Cooley.  The softcover version is £27 and the hardcover £45 - available to buy here.

"Love Of My Father", from Zara Carpenter’s new collection.
Here’s Zara story behind the hat:
This headpiece is made on a satin covered headband and sinamay base. It is adorned with a pair of pigeons wings, an adult pigeons head, nestled with a casting of a juvenile pigeon on a bed of fabric violets. The pigeon wing and head is covered in black fine glitter, representing ashes.
My father kept pigeons when I was young, he would send them off on long races and sometimes they won. He adored his pigeons. My father died when I was 15 which broke my heart and changed my life forever. Many people think pigeons are vermin but I love them and I always thought that is we did come back again once we die then maybe he would come back as a pigeon.’

Over the last 8 months I have been working on a sculpture made of flowers, birds wings, insects, snakeskin and berries. This project is still not finished. The headpiece you see in these photographs is a wearable piece of the sculpture. The completed sculpture will be exhibited at The Horsebridge Gallery Whitstable, part of a group exhibition in November.

This is also a sneak peek from the shoot of my couture hat collection.

Gorey Ghostbusters
I commissioned this illustration for Zara this Christmas. I asked Mark Barnes (an illustrating genius also known as Britain’s fourth greatest illustrator!) to make something that includes all the things Zara loves. This final piece, done in the style of Edward Gorey, features both me and Zara along with most of the things she loves. Unfortunately I forgot to mention dinosaurs…
