JEPPE HEIN | DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING BE OPEN TO EVERYTHING

12 OCTOBER – 5 NOVEMBER 2017
ST. AGNES | NAVE

In my work I’m interested in the dialogue between the viewer and the artwork, the space, other viewers and themselves. With every new project I ask myself: how can I touch people and encourage an exchange with their environment,in particular other people? The artwork here is the tool, the impetus I use to communicate with the world and with others. Sometimes we’re surprised or irritated in the process, sometimes we have to smile or pause for a moment. We have so many different impressions and experiences every day when we encounter things and each other. It’s in these encounters that we connect with the inner and the outer world. Sometimes we gain distance from it, sometimes it brings us closer. 

I’ve been thinking for some time about the question of what happens when the artwork as impetus disappears? What does an exhibition look like without objects? Can this exchange between myself, others and the space happen just as spontaneously, intensely and animatedly? What does it take to sharpen our awareness and experience each other? 

We will be at the center of this exhibition, sharing 16 different experiences on 16 days with a whole host of guests.

We will be the art work – every day different, every day new.
