Judas Companion

Established in 2016 by Central Saint Martins graduate and German native Jasmin Reif, the Judas Companion label aims to unite art and fashion through wearable structures. At the centre of her practice are “grotesque masks made of soft yarn and oversized garments made of recycled leather” which Reif photographs in different conceptual environments. Her German heritage and the effects of Brexit have recently impacted her work with her current project dealing with England as her “home” in the form of a wearable sculpture depicting a fully furnished house. In 2018 Judas Companion exhibited at  at Storage Capacité with ‘Tiger Tank’, which saw the artist herself become a tiger, or rather, a cross between tiger and human. Prosthesis and costume worked to reveal the state of  a restricted transformation.  Judas Companion has featured in The New York Times, Wallpaper, Crack Magazine and AnOther, and has had work commissioned by Ketel One Vodka. Her masks were among the works displayed at the Sarabande x JOYCE pop up in Hong Kong.
