CISTERNERNE FREDERIKSBERG PRESENTS:
IN IS THE ONLY WAY OUT BY JEPPE HEIN
April 15 – November 30, 2018
This year’s exhibition project in Cisternerne is made by the internationally
renowned artist Jeppe Hein (DK). Hein invites the audience to journey through the
underground’s labyrinthic colonnades and at the same time experience an inner
journey. You must confront the darkness to be able to see the light, as Hein makes
clear with the title of his most comprehensive exhibition in Copenhagen thus far: IN
IS THE ONLY WAY OUT.
Jeppe Hein is well-known for his interactive and playful sculptures and art installations,
installed all over the world, among these his mirror labyrinths and water pavilions and his
series of Modified Social Benches which challenges our way of being together. A
prominent characteristic of Hein’s artworks is that they are not complete until they meet
their audience who is always invited to participate.
IN IS THE ONLY WAY OUT is a total installation taking up the 4320 m2 of Cisternerne and
inviting the visitor onto an underground journey from the darkness into the light, on the way
experiencing both challenges, surprises and disorientation. The cold and moist climate of
Cisternerne forces itself on you and insists that you are present in the now. In the same
way, Hein’s artworks enable visitors to feel: I am right here right now.
In the first room of the exhibit, the underground stillness is torn by the violent sound of a
flame activated when a visitor approaches. When moving deeper into the underground the
visitor is met by a series of round, rotating mirrors which heightens the sense of
disorientation found among the dark colonnades.
