| New from Jeppe Hein: Breath as an Artistic Theme
From time immemorial breath has been closely tied to the soul and the spirit. Deep, slow breathing has a calming effect on the psyche, and breath exercises are essential components of spiritual education methods in both Christian and Eastern meditation. Breath also plays a special role for the Danish artist Jeppe Hein (*1974, Copenhagen). The exhibition Inhale – Hold – Exhale and its companion publication are the first to shift the focus onto the significance of breath as both a theme and material for art, using Hein’s practice as the prime example. The catalog also draws an arc backward through the art history, all the way to the earliest high cultures, in which breath already had exceptional value as the seat of the life force. As well as photographs of the show and essays, the catalogue also features a conversation between Jeppe Hein and Helen Hirsch.Exhibition : 3.3.–29.7. 2018, Kunstmuseum ThunSILKE and JEPPE HEIN (both *1974) have four children together. This first picture book by the artist couple arose from their experiences as a family. At the same time, it is an amalgamation of Jeppe Hein's watercolors and Silke Hein's collages. They live and work in Berlin.
