Save Event: Jeppe Hein: IN IS THE ONLY WAY OUT

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


This year in Cisternerne, artist Jeppe Hein (DK) invites you to journey through the underground’s labyrinthic colonnades and at the same time experience an inner journey. You must confront the darkness to be able to see the light.


This year's exhibition in Cisternerne, IN IS THE ONLY WAY OUT by Jeppe Hein (DK), is a total installation taking up the 4320 m2 of the underground spaces and inviting the visitor onto an underground journey from the darkness into the light - on the way experiencing both challenges, surprises and disorientation. The cold and moist climate of Cisternerne forces itself on you and insists that you are present in the now. In the same way, Hein’s artworks enable visitors to feel: I am right here right now.

Jeppe Hein is well-known for his interactive and playful sculptures and art installations, installed all over the world, among these his mirror labyrinths and water pavilions and his series of Modified Social Benches which challenges our way of being together. A prominent characteristic of Hein’s artworks is that they are not complete until they meet their audience who is always invited to participate.
