About Jeppe Hein
Jeppe Hein was born in 1974 in Copenhagen (Denmark). He currently lives and works in Copenhagen (Denmark) and Berlin (Germany).
Questioning the ritualistic relationship between art and the spectator, Jeppe Hein creates witty and minimalist installations that intervene with both indoor and outdoor spaces deliberately blurring the boundaries between conceptual art and mechanical objects. Combining sculpture and installation with architecture and technology, he mixes the notion of the functional with the artistic and by setting up a dialogue between the work, the viewer and the site of intervention, he suggests that the audience contributes to the completion of the work. Whilst his style refers to minimalism, and to abstract concepts, he also tries to depart from an abstract experience by making the audience physically activate the work.
Jeppe Hein is represented by Galleri Nicolai Wallner.
