Fabian Hesse (Artist in Residence at Jaaga)

Fabian is driven by a singular determination: to share his expertise and talent. This has made him a versatile, articulate and public friendly artist that he is. Having studied architecture & visual arts at Lyon(France), Berlin (Germany) Vienna(Austria) and Munich (Germany) he has come a long way at such a young age. He mainly works with 3D printing, installation and performance. For most of his art installations he uses 3D printing, second-hand and recycled materials, security glass and others. He explores artistically, these transformations with different means coming together in multi-media installations, how they overlap, proliferate, disappear.
He enjoys collaborating with artists and people alike. He is also heavily engaged in ‘site specific’ work, meaning he works with materials found in a certain specific site.

Here, at Jaaga he is in residence for a period of 4 months. This residence is a tie up with the Goethe institute.

He hacked one of them and the entire process of re-assembling was made open to the public to be witnessed and shared in the month of September 2013. The second 3D printer installation happened at Max Mueller Bhavan, Bangalore – via 3D printer party flux assembly. He counts Joseph Beuys and Nam June Paik, as inspirational.  His residency at Jaaga will culminate with him showcasing his work on the inauguration day of the Jaaga’s new co-working space at Richmond town. He recommends Jaaga for artists, depending on what they are looking for. For Hesse though, he concludes being at Jaaga has been an enjoyable and a great learning experience which has made his belief of inclusiveness of artists and building networks come true!
