Jeppe Hein was born in 1974, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Hein´s sculptures and installations combine functional elements with the 1970s traditions of minimalism and conceptual art. By employing materials such as mirrors, balloons, and benches, Hein invites spectators to activate the public space. In the words of the artist “I want to show that the work isn’t anything on its own, it is only what the public informs it with. The viewer’s role brings the piece to the center of attention”.
Jeppe Hein lives and works between Berlin and Copenhagen.
