Shawnette Poe - visual artist
makeup and hair - Giorgia Savaglio
Shawnette Poe is a Polish born artist raised between Bremen and Berlin, which is where she probably first learnt about the "heimat". The meaning of this german word greatly influences both her nomadic lifestyle (travelling between Berlin, Southern Italy and - lately - Slovenia) and her work.
This story is inspired by Shawnette's 2012 installation Mutterland in which the "heimat" is one of the main topics explored.
The pictures were shot in Capo Colonna (KR), an ancient cape located in Ionian Calabria, overlooking the last doric column of a temple dedicated to Hera Lacinia (Juno).
