(Dutch, born 1972) studied fashion design and photography before receiving an MFA from Ateliers Arnhem, the Netherlands. Some of her earliest memories are of life in Kenya, where she spent three years as a child. When her family returned to the Netherlands in 1978, Sassen was troubled: “I didn’t feel like I belonged in Europe, and yet I knew I was a foreigner in Africa,” she says. Ten years later, at age sixteen, Sassen revisited Kenya, and she has been traveling and working in Africa ever since. She made Parasomnia, her newest body of work, in a number of intentionally unidentified African countries, featuring anonymous subjects. Parasomnia is a category of sleep disorder whose symptoms include abnormal dreams, nightmares, and sleepwalking. In the surreal pictures in this installation, Sassen invites viewers to follow her on a journey through the mysterious remnants of her memories. (via MoMa

" Illustrator and a tree hugger at heart, inspired by music, sun, plants and people. Born in 1989 in Riga, Latvia, as a bright kid, hungry for knowledge and adventure. After lots of travelling with family at early age, I finally feel at home now in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I currently reside and create. In love with traditional drawing, dry media and pencils, as well as forests, cycling and staying late at night." - Lena Klyukina
