Fabienne Hess | Studio

artists, Fabienne Hess

With such time consuming and repetitive work processes, Hess spends hours at a time in her studio.

The image above shows us her work on Zebras, Blanks and Blobs. Patiently spending time with each and every image, Hess describes it almost like a playing a game;  challenging at first but the more you look the easier it becomes to see what you’re looking for.

about, artists, Fabienne Hess

“What I think is sought here is an intermission, a point of rest from the unbalanced consumption the gallery text alludes to, the opportunity to pause and observe the attention that we give each image… To see Hess’ project in this way makes this work about the operations and solidity of institutional memory and the fragility or unreliability of personal memory, of its human timeline, decline and death.”

Replica Sentiments

Fabienne Hess

French Riviera was host to Hess’ exhibition Replica Sentiments in 2014. The gallery displayed wall hangings spilling across the space, made of a luxury silk that contrasted with garishly coloured and pixelated imagery of designer watch branding and slogans. The notion of digital trash again feeds into her work. The exhibition was complemented by a written piece by Basia Lewandowska Cummings, titled ‘We’re here to help’, inspired by Hess’ techno-vernacular.

Introduction | Fabienne Hess

about, artists, Fabienne Hess, Introduction

Fabienne Hess is a Swiss born artist now living and practicing in London. The starting point for her most recent work begins with the found, discarded and consciously removed. Her process recognises and manipulates our daily interactions with spam emails, junk folders and the digital content of distinguished corporations. Through image rendering and fragmentation, Hess carves fresh and raw dialogues from the culture of waste and instant gratification within society.
