The Curve

Daily 11am-8pm

Danish artist Jeppe Hein has created a dynamic site-specific installation for The Curve as part of the Barbicanís new programme of commissions for this unusual space. Heinís piece redefines the space of the gallery, involving and perplexing the viewer.

This young Danish artist has worked with fountains, moving walls and gravity-defying kinetic sculptures. His commission for The Curve is entitled Distance, and involves a very unusual roller coaster.
