Gayle Chong Kwan

    Gayle Chong Kwan is a multidisciplinary artist whose photographic works, immersive installations and shared sensory events are exhibited internationally, both in galleries and in the public realm. At the core of her practice is an expanded and embodied notion of photographic practice through which she explores simulacra, the sublime and the politics of intimacy, travel, trade, and consumption.  She uses techniques of collage to create mise-en-scene landscapes, sensory experiences, and sculptural pieces worn on the body, which are often made out of detritus, waste, documentary images, and which draw upon archives and collections or develop out of working with groups and communities. Chong Kwan was Artist in Residence at the V&A 2019-2021, and her current exhibition Waste Archipelago at Galleria Alberta Pane was developed out of a year-long project on waste that she led with students and academics at Ca' Foscari University in Venice, as recipient of the Sustainable Art Prize in 2019.  She is currently undertaking a PhD on 'Imaginal Travel' in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art.

Samuel Dejong

    Who am I, why am I here? What is infinity? What is reality? While contemplating on these existential topics, and in search of the answer to the big Why are we here?, Samuel Dejong translates his fascination with reality into the perfection of the natural forms and the smallest living matter. As a self-taught artist with a medical background in surgery, bio-engineering and design, he stretches the limits of technical as well as aesthetic potential, applying the precision of a surgeon to fine art. For only with an open mind, free of preconceptions, can one accomplish what initially seemed impossible, and thereby elevate something relatively inconspicuous - or disconcerting even - to the level of art. He takes his role seriously – that one of an artist who wishes to trigger the awakening of the consciousness. Surgery has taught him persistence, precision, anatomy, the beauty of perfection and the delicacy of life. Science has taught him to look deeper, beyond, to look for serendipity and try to understand what the essential elements of life are. He tries to combine this knowledge and integrate it into his art. One of the returning subjects in Samuel Dejong’s oeuvre are the small creatures that can at times make us wonder about the beauty of nature, while they can at other moments awaken aversion and even fear in many of us. With his art, Samuel Dejong challenges us to witness the beauty of the foundation of our ecosystem: insects. No other creatures are as elegant and fragile yet so strong and indestructible. They embody pure aesthetics, with their utmost detailed perfection. Many artists have used them to create beautiful works of art. Samuel Dejong wants to add an extra element to insects in art: life and motion! On his artistic journey that manifests the many realms of beauty, he departs into more abstract forms; yet the link to nature remains. Seeking inspiration in history, science, nature, as well as art movements like De Stijl, Nouveau Réalisme, Biomorphism, Surrealism and Spatialism, Samuel Dejong strives for harmony and equilibrium – to create art through perfection. In a world full of chaos there are places where everything is at peace.

Ellen Jantzen

    Ellen Jantzen was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri. Her early college years were spent obtaining a degree in graphic arts; later emphasizing fine art. Ellen spent two years at FIDM (the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in downtown Los Angeles. Here, she obtained her advanced degree in 1992. After a few years working in the industry, including several years at Mattel Toy Company as a senior project designer, she became disillusioned with the corporate world and longed for a more creative outlet. Having been trained in computer design while at Mattel, Ellen continued her training on her own using mostly Photoshop software. Ellen doesn’t consider herself a "photographer" but an image-maker, as she creates work that bridges the world of photography, prints and collage. As digital cameras began producing excellent resolution, she found her perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in her current explorations in photo-inspired art using both a camera to capture imagery and a computer to alter, combine and manipulate the pieces. Her work is best described as “photomontages” Ellen’s work is shown and published internationally.

    I have been photographing bees for over 30 years, combining my passion for photography with that for the world of bees, inherited from my beekeeper father. This passion has never become a job, but it has given me a lot of satisfaction: from my first medal in an international competition (Apimondia) to the publication of articles in important magazines and the creation of exhibitions at fairs and events. My photography is above all documentary, and in recent years I have tried to tell a story that is important to me in many ways: the story of a small insect, a worker bee, which has spent its entire brief existence at the service of the beehive, carrying out, one after the other, all the jobs that its colony needs in a succession of extraordinary and interesting events.
