Jeppe Hein

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, 1974. Lives and works in Berlin and Copenhagen.

 

Jeppe Hein studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen and the Städel Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt am Main. He is widely known for his production of experiential and interactive artworks that can be positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. Unique in their formal simplicity and notable for their frequent use of humor, his works engage in a lively dialogue with the traditions of Minimalist sculpture and Conceptual art of the 1970s. Jeppe Hein’s works often feature surprising and captivating elements which place spectators at the centre of events and focus on the their experience and perception of the surrounding space.

Recent solo shows include: IMA-Indianapolis Museum of Art, 2010; ARoS Kunstmuseum, Århus, 2009; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, 2009; Carré d’Art, Musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, 2007; Sculpture Center, New York, 2007; The Curve, Barbican Art Centre, London, 2007; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 2005; MoCA-Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2005; P.S.1., New York, 2004; among others.
