Fabienne Hess

Born in Switzerland. Lives and works in London (UK).


Fabienne Hess works with the discarded materials of society: images digitally recovered from trash folders, the terms and conditions of large companies, text taken from spam emails. This personal and social archaeology addresses issues of waste and consumption, the structures of everyday life that are ignored but whose hand guides our lives, and the unconscious sublimation of the imagination.
