Syrian artist Lawand and British poet Pascale Petit had never met, nor known anything about each other’s work, before coming together to make Effigies. But seeing Lawand’s eerie paintings, and reading Petit’s darkly dreamy poetry, it is clear that the match was made in some hidden corner of heaven. Effigies is the result of their incredible collaboration and correspondence, with Petit responding to the drawings by Lawand that most moved her. Taken together, it is difficult to discern which—the poem or the drawing—was inspired by the other, so organically do Petit’s and Lawand’s styles cohere.
