Though born in Perth, Australia in 1981, Jessica Tremp
grew up in a Swiss village near Zurich before moving to Melbourne at the age of 18. She brought with her a love for theatrics, romanticism and nature and combines these with her passion for the art of photography. She often uses herself as a model and prefers an organic, spontaneous and naturally lit approach to her work, aiming to create an emotional authenticity rather than a literal accuracy. She is self-taught and draws inspiration from blues music, Italian food, a nature that seems to slip through our fingers, connection and disconnection, midnight snacks eaten alone, the animal kingdom, awkward social experiences and that deep covered up need to be cradled by something extraordinary.

The work of Bart Hess
is of the most tactile and intuitive nature. He first delved into instinctive textiles when studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he created A Hunt for High Tech, a collection of materials that mimicked the bestial outer layers of unfamiliar hybrid species, accompanied by an evocative film that brilliantly brought his concepts to life. Over the past six years, Hess has developed an impressive roster of work. He has pinned, stretched, slimed and scraped materials in relation to the human body, and collaborated with the likes of Lucy McRae, Nick Knight, Lady Gaga, Iris van Herpen and Walter van Beirendonck. In 2013, he is the recipient of the Stichting Profiel prize and his work is the subject of a mid-career survey at the Rijksmuseum Enschede. The exhibition notes explain that Hess creates another world, one “in which technology melds body and object… when we don the materials and applications that Hess has created, we are transformed into a new but completely logical creature.” (via Artnau
