press release

Jeppe Hein was born in 1974. He trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and studied in Frankfurt at the Städelschule - Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Kunste. He lives and works in Berlin.

Hein started as a painter, but is now working with interactive sculptures. His works operate with a minimalist expression, and he often seeks to involve the spectators. According to Jeppe Hein art should make people feel something and talk to each other. In this way he also challenges the relationship between object and subject.

Hein is a highly successful young Danish artist, who has in recent years gained an international reputation: Last year he had exhibitions in Britain, Norway, France, Australia and the United States. Hein was represented at the Vienna Biennial in 2003. His last exhibition in Denmark was in 2003 at Galleri Nicolai Wallner.

The project in the x-rummet is still in preparation.
