Jeppe Hein, Residency September 2009 January 2010
Jeppe Hein is hosted in residence at Atelier Calder from September 2009 to January 2010. Born in 1974 in Copenhagen, Jeppe Hein lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin.
On the occasion of his residency at Atelier Calder, Jeppe Hein is developing a new project entitled "CIRCUS HEIN" in connection with the circus arts and in particular with the Cirque de Calder.
Jeppe Hein invites about thirty artists to participate in his project: visual artists, designers, architects, photographers, musicians, performers?
Some will perform performances inspired by traditional circus acts: acrobats, jugglers, clowns, brass bands...
Others take care of costumes, decorations (wallpaper), new forms of architecture (capitals, signs), and "circus sculptures" are made from diverted circus props. Popcorn, cotton candy and other culinary performances will be offered.
Following his residency, Jeppe Hein will exhibit at the FRAC Centre in Orleans.
Exhibition from Saturday, December 12, 2009 to Sunday, April 4, 2010.
