Jeppe Hein | Modified Street Lights

The gallery is pleased to present an Online Presentation of a new series of outdoor works by Jeppe Hein.

Creating a playful yet subtle take on the street lights we are all accustomed to, Jeppe Hein’s  Modified Street Light series consists of elongated, tilting, winding, rapidly rising or falling poles with wide arches, sharp bends or small loops, creating inviting and interactive forms. 

Moving beyond the assumed function of providing light, the works’ modified forms open up a  dialogue through which the work’s environment and those who use and inhabit this environment become an integral part of the work. 

By interacting with these works, we are encouraged to reevaluate themes of functionality and purposes, as the works’ playfulness gives the idea of a “guiding light” another more metaphorical interpretation. As we shift our bodies to appreciate the works’ unexpected shapes, we are given the space to shift our consciousness and emotional landscape.

Jeppe Hein bases much of his practice on the relationships that exist between our internal consciousness and more physical elements. Using minimal yet elegant materials that often reflect our own image, as well as forms that playfully encourage us to move our bodies and to change positions, Jeppe Hein creates an interactive and constantly changing dialogue between the spectator, the work, and the exhibition space that surrounds it.

His sculptures, site-specific installations, watercolours and public works create environments in which we are encouraged to imagine new possibilities. In so doing, he challenges us to re-think the ways in which our mind and our bodies are connected, and to reflect on how we navigate through the metaphysical and physical worlds.

Jeppe Hein (b. 1974, Denmark) has had solo exhibitions at several prestigious institutions including Centre Pompidou (Paris), Sprengel Museum (Hannover), Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt), ARoS (Aarhus), IMA Indianapolis Museum of Art (Indianapolis), Barbican Art Centre (London), Hayward Gallery (London), the National Gallery of Denmark (Copenhagen), 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art (Kanazawa), the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne) and Bonniers Konsthall (Stockholm) among many others. Hein’s recent solo public projects include a solo with Public Art Fund (New York) in Brooklyn Bridge Park, as well as solo exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (Wolfsburg), Nouveau Musee National de Monaco (Monaco), Museet for Religiøs Kunst (Lemvig) and Bundeskunsthalle Bonn (Bonn) among others. He was included in La Biennale di Venezia’s 58th Edition in 2019 and will open a solo exhibition at Modern Museet (Stockholm) in 2022.

He has had recent public installation placed at Kistefos Museum (Jevnaker), Fondation Carmignac (Porquerolles), and in the cities of Lemvig, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Berlin, Aarhus, and Copenhagen. Hein’s work can be found in the public collections of FRAC Lorraine (Metz), MMK Museum fur Moderne Kunst (Frankfurt am Main), Centre Pompidou (Paris), MOCA (Los Angeles), Tate Gallery (London) and the National Gallery of Denmark (Copenhagen) among many others.
