Modified Social Benches

  • Address: 4270 John Shields Parkway
  • Dublin, OH 43017


Jeppe Hein’s Modified Social Benches are an excellent example of the artist’s exploration of the phenomenon of perception, stemming from his consideration of social space and the way in which the form and context of the sculptures present unlikely or impossible seating structures. His work focuses on problematizing the traditional relationships between sculpture, viewer and the environment. Hein was born in Copenhagen and now lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. His arts education includes the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen and Städelschule, Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt.
