CAN TOUCH THIS
Danish artist Jeppe Hein is known for his playful public installations and conceptual sculptures.
Using water, light, smoke and neon, Hein’s work invites viewer interaction. Earlier this year, he installed 18 pieces near New York’s Brooklyn Bridge, including sculptural playgrounds and large-scale fountains.
Hein was born in 1974 and his work is found in various public collections including the Museum für Moderne Kunst, in Frankfurt, Germany, and Museum of Contemporary Art, in Los Angeles, CA. He lives and works in Copenhagen.
Hein’s work is on view as part of the New Skin exhibition at the Aïshti Foundation, Jal el Dib.
