Confronting viewers with their own image is a recurring dynamic in Hein’s practice. Sine Curve I, a series of head-height reflective panels arranged in a meandering formation, continued Hein’s manipulation of space. Personal reflections bounce around the work, and each step provokes a shifting focus from personal to London’s skyline in the distance, as mirrored panels quickly return to reflections of the exterior of the building

Reality and reflection combine to produce an unfamiliar and disorientating situation that is increased by the movement of the viewer.

Hein is widely known for his production of experiential and interactive artworks that can be positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. Unique in their formal simplicity and notable for their frequent use of humour, his works engage in a lively dialogue with the traditions of Minimalist sculpture and Conceptual art of the 1970s. Jeppe Hein’s works often feature surprising and captivating elements which place spectators at the centre of events and focus on their experience and perception of the surrounding space
