Opening Reception Friday, January 28, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
303 Gallery is proud to present our second exhibition of new work by Jeppe Hein.
Outside the gallery, the lens of a telescope beckons viewers to peer inside the gallery space. By looking into the telescope’s lens, viewers become aware that the expected panoramic view will be satisfied in the figurative sense only. “Upside Down” subverts the expected view by reflecting the gallery space turned upside down. Viewers will step back surprised and take a closer look through the gallery’s window without the telescope again in order to find out what they seem to have overlooked with the naked eye. This allegorical play on the constant dialogue between expectation and vision, truth and imagery is also extrapolated through “With Your Own Eyes,” a hole in the gallery wall through which a viewer will see a reflection of his own eye rather than a voyeuristc view through a private space inside the gallery.
For “360º Gallery Photo Edition,” Hein has created a mechanism that exposes images in exact 15 degree intervals throughout a 360 degree cycle. Photographing the gallery space in its empty state and creating a printed document of the results, the viewer is able to take a mathematical stock of the precise space he is an at any given moment. Removing any trace of the sacrosanct notion of the art institution as a consecrated space, Hein seems to embrace the minimalist ideal of arbitrary definitiveness. “Light Pavilion,” several chains of light bulbs hang down from the ceiling on strings. When visitors enter the space the light chains slowly move upwards. After a short period of time, an accessible pavilion of light chains appears that slowly sinks down again. Visitors exploring the back room are suddenly facing a member of the gallery staff pedalling on an exercise bike, the source of the kinetic energy which animates the light itself. Again upending the notion of art’s supernatural power, Hein breaks down the wall between creator and spectator, and the artistic process itself is sidestepped in favor of collective experience.
Jeppe Hein has had recent solo exhibitions at Neues Museum Nürnberg, Germany; Indianapolis Museum of Art, USA; PICA, Perth, Australia, and ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark. In 2011, he will open solo exhibitions at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; Art Tower, Mito, Japan and Johann König, Berlin. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Tate Modern, London; Sculpture Center, New York; Barbican Art Centre, London; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; MOCA, Los Angeles; P.S.1 MOMA, New York and 50th Venice Biennale. Catalogues of Hein's work have been published by ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Musée d'art contemporain de Nimes, Koenig Books, Villa Manin, and the Centre Pompidou. Hein lives and works in Berlin.

The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago
First exhibited in 1979, Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party consists of a large triangular table on which rest 39 place settings representing celebrated women from the past, ranging from “Primordial Goddess” to Virginia Woolf. Part of the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection, The Dinner Party is now installed in a dramatic space that has a reverential aura, a kind of expectant hush, as if women were about to take their rightful place at the great table of human history. — Mark Stevens NYMAG
