Sylva Hattington, born in LA, California and now living in Berlin, is a self taught headdress designer who has been creating pieces for the past 14 years. She dreamed of her first hat concept and has been experimenting with new designs ever since. One of her favorite things about headpieces is they can be worn by everyone, and help people to feel empowered and beautiful by embodying different sides of themselves. Once you put on a costume, you can let go of your inhibitions and preconceived ideas of who you are supposed to be.
Her work celebrates the duality between dark and light and combines both elements to make you question your concept of beauty. Her inspirations include happiness and suffering, healing and destruction, pleasure and pain.
Louis Fleischauer was born in Leipzig, Eastern Germany where he frequently had to deal with harassment by the Stasi for his art. He moved to Berlin after the Fall of the Wall, where he started experimenting with leather, sounds, and his body. 1996 he started his project AMF in Los Angeles, performing at events such as Burning Man. His wearable art AMF Korsets has been featured in movie ”7th Son”, JayZ music videos, and at galleries in Japan, US, and Europe.
The art of Louis Fleischauer is an invocation of raw primal energy as an answer to a consumer friendly reality. Louis is a sculptor, and body-artist using organic materials such as animal hides, bones, flowers, blood and his own skin. In his public rituals he turns humans into living sculptures and instruments, including his own body. Louis falls into a state of trance through a mix of agony and euphoria. His sculptures are the essence of this experience.
