JEPPE HEIN: YOUR WAY
Chateau La Coste
30 September 2017 – 14 January 2018
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Jeppe Hein has created an extensive new exhibition at Château La Coste. Curated by Luise Faurschou, the exhibition include new as well as existing work. Hein is widely known for interactive, experiential art that draws on minimal aesthetics, technology and a witty sense of humor.
For the exhibition ‘Your Way’ at Château La Coste, Hein has re-organised the gallery space, designed by French architect, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, into a series of smaller spaces. After spending some time at Château La Coste in 2016 and again in the spring of 2017, Hein was inspired by the different routes and options that visitors find around the landscape at La Coste. By breaking up the voluminous “white cube” space, he presents visitors with various choices and experiences along the way, as is suggested by the exhibition title. Throughout this journey, visitors encounter different works by Hein, including new pieces produced for this exhibition.
Overall, the exhibition offers a moment to reflect on the function of art in relation to both a shared, social moment and our individual health in the broadest sense. This epicurean focus on pleasure and the senses, and the parcour of the exhibition create an interesting dialogue with the environment at Château La Coste.
Born in Copenhagen in 1974, Jeppe Hein lives and works in Berlin. He studied at both the Royal Danish Academy of Arts and the Städel Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt am Main. Recent major solo exhibitions include the Kistefos-Museet, Jevnaker, Norway (2016), the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (2016); the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany (2015) and Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York, USA (2015). In France, Hein has had solo shows at the LiFE, Saint-Nazaire (2014), Atelier Calder, Saché (2009), FRAC Île-de-France / Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris (2009) and Carré d’Art de Nîmes (2007). He has also made notable collaborations with artists such as Dan Graham (Rüdiger Schöttle Gallery, Munich, 2008) and Larry Bell (Galerie Daniel Templon, Paris, 2010).
