Hein is widely known for interactive, experiential art that draws on minimal aesthetics, technology and a witty sense of humor.After spending some time at Château La Coste in 2016 and again in the spring of 2017, Hein has proposed to re-organise the gallery space, designed by French architect, Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Partly inspired by the di erent routes and options that visitors nd around La Coste, Hein has broken up this volumous, “white cube” space into a series of smaller spaces.
