This richly illustrated catalogue is published in connection with the exhibition SENSE CITY. The catalogue carries an introduction to the Danish, international artist Jeppe Hein and his works. The catalogue contains texts by the exhibition curator Marie Nipper, art historians Peter Kirkhoff Eriksen and Christian Skovbjerg Jensen, writer Finn Janning, architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG), headcurator at the Centre Pompidou in Paris Christine Macel, art critic Michel Gauthier, Ph.d. Line Marie Bruun Jespersen, artists Olafur Eliasson and Ernesto Neto as well as an artist talk between Jeppe Hein and American artist Dan Graham.
Jeppe Hein’s extensive artistic production can be most accurately positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. In addition to having high artistic and aesthetic qualities, his works are often interactive (moving walls, smoking benches, balancing balls, etc.). Jeppe Hein’s works often feature surprising and captivating elements, which place spectators at the centre of events. This focus on the spectator’s experience is the pivotal point of the exhibition.
