Dimensional Circle

65 CROISETTE - Cannes (F)

Jeppe Hein


‘4-Dimensional Circle’ decorates the square in front of the shops at 65 Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes, a project designed by the architects Alain Moatti and Henri Rivière, at the foot of the mythical Miramar building.
The work by Jeppe Hein is comprised of four intersecting rectangular mirrors with a semi-circular opening and a circle appearing in the middle of the sculpture.  This circle is highlighted by a series of LED lights installed on the mirrors, illuminating the sculpture at night.
Born in Copenhagen in 1974, Jeppe Hein studied at the Frankfurt Academy of Fine Arts.  He lives and works in Berlin and Copenhagen.  He took part in the 2003 Venice Biennale. His works are exhibited in Basle and in the collections of the Pompidou Centre, Tate Modern, Moca Los Angeles, Fond National d’Art Contemporain de Paris, etc.
