Jeppe Hein | A New End
World's End, Trustees of Reservation, Boston, USA | 26.8.2016–31.10.2017
Jeppe Hein, a Berlin and Copenhagen-based artist, often combines elements of humor with the traditions of minimalism and conceptual art in his work. At World’s End, Hein will install a reflective labyrinth structure, made of mirrored posts of differing heights, whose form mimics the shape of the surrounding drumlin formations. Hein draws inspiration from the stunning natural beauty and landscape at World’s End, which features a combination of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed and natural landscapes with spectacular views of the Boston harbor and skyline.
Visitors can walk through the labyrinth, touch the mirrored panels, and create their own photographic interpretations of “art and the landscape.” The sculpture will be installed in August and will be on view for a full year. Each season will bring a new and interesting dimension to this unique work. The Trustees will host an opening reception with the artist on Sunday, September 18, 2016.
