Jeppe Hein produces “experiential and interactive artworks” that intersect art, architecture, and technical inventions. Incorporating humor with minimalist sculpture and 1970s conceptual art, his works allow the observer to experience and perceive the surrounding space. “My installations offer the viewer the possibility of participation in the actual piece, or of being confronted with the surprise of the unexpected. While in museums, the relationship between the viewer and the artwork is already defined to a strong degree, artworks in public space open up new possibilities for the viewer to lose his timidity and respect towards art…Therefore I consider art as a social space, a sign system with the capacity provoke and challenge communication and reflection,” Hein says.
