HeHe

Collective

Country: France, Germany & United Kingdom

With humour, HeHe reinvent our ongoing technological adventures; from the transformation of energy, emissions, intoxication, rail infrastructures to electronically mediated systems of control. In developing poetic interventions about the limits and meaning of our technologically conditioned world, their practice reconciles the individual with the reality of their immediate urban environment. Their concept of reverse cultural engineering and the idea of aesthetising emission clouds in real time provides a theoretical framework for their installations on transportation (Train Project) and pollution (Nuage Vert, Champs d’Ozone).

Working independently, HeHe bring theatre, engineering and design to their art practice and collaborate with individuals from a diverse range of disciplines and interests. Their work has been exhibited at Lyon Biennale (2009); Centre Georges Pompidou (2004, 2006, Air de Paris 2007); International Design biennial in St-Etienne (2006, 2010); Media Art Triennale at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing (2011); They have been commissioned to make site-specific work in the public realm by Hou Hanru for the Luxembourg European Capital of Culture (2007); The Arts Catalyst (2012), SKOR Amsterdam (2012). Nuage Vert was awarded several international prizes including the Golden Nica in Hybrid Art at Ars Electronica, Linz (2008).
