Csenge Vass is a conceptual fashion and textile designer and art director. She gained her undergraduate degree at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2017. During her bachelor studies she received an Erasmus scholarship for studying in Barcelona, where she spent a semester at ESDI – Escuela Superior de Diseno art school. During her studies she focused primarily on the development and creation of innovative and experimental materials. Her graduation project ‘MORPHIGENESIS´ was a combination of fashion, textile design and science in the context of installative art. She received an internship position in Eindhoven, Netherlands, where she had a chance to work in the studio of the internationally well-known conceptual designer, Bart Hess. Hess’s work had a major influence on her artistic attitude, among other experiments she started to be interested in the world of contemporary dance. She started to work as a costume and production designer for the international reknowned hungarian choreographer Adrienn Hód. Besides, she was the costume and production designer in dance pieces of Molnár Csaba and Cuhorka Emese and Kelemen Patrik. The ‘URFORM’ performance installation was her first collaborative project with two other artists active in different fields of art – Barna Nóra, contemporary dancer and Mákó Rozi, musician. She is interested in experimental and innovative projects, in which her aim is to make the material the core of artistic inquiry – as in Momentum Zero, her first work with Helge Letonja and OCN.
