For Carsten Höller art is a unique material that generates unique experiences.
Whether he installs giant slides in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall or places living reindeer, birs and funghi in Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof museum, Höller’s large-scale intallations encourage participation and thereby emphasize art’s transformative potential. He applies his scientific background to his artistic practice and invesitigates the nature of human relationships by creating surroundings which turn spectators into participants in what could be described as test sites for the study of human behaviour. His printmaking projects with BORCH Editions are an extension of these investigations in the medium of photogravure.
Carsten Höller, born 1961 in Brussels, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden and Biriwa, Ghana. He has been collaborating with BORCH Editions since 2004.
