Frederika Abbate is a novelist, essayist and art critic. She is the author of six novels with strong erotic content. Co-founder of the independent publishing house White Rabbit Prod, radio columnist on literary and philosophical works, she also writes articles and essays on art, contemporary artists, and themes such as terror, violence, transhumanism.
Anne Van der Linden (born 1959 in England, lives and works in Saint-Denis, France) is a French painter and drawer. Beeing of a literary education, she came early to drawing expression, then to oil painting. After an abstract period, she developed her figurative style from the 90's. Her art is in the filiation of German expressionism, middle-age engravings, cartoonists as Robert Crumb and many more. Her attachment to literature brought her naturally to illustration activity, for edition project as well as for newspapers. Searching to express through visual arts the tensed interaction between inner wild life and social normalization could be her main concern. Her work has been widely exhibited and published in France and in foreign countries.
