The British-German art collective HeHe consists of Helen Evans (b. 1972, Welwyn Garden City, UK) and Heiko Hansen (b. 1970, Pinneberg, DE). They are based in Paris. HeHe explores the ‘undesired needs’ of people : health, security, communication, energy and the environment. In their practice they confront and expose the implications and hidden dimensions of ecological threats. They also play with the relationships between the microscopically small and the gigantically large. They often cause symbols and metaphors to converge with daily reality. The collective shapes technology, designs art, abuses methods and techniques and opens up new vistas. In short, HeHe forges the past and fakes the future.



The art collective HeHe dropped a massive high-voltage electricity pylon into the canal at Oud Sint-Jan (Old St John's). A crackling, flashing sculpture, that tackled various metropolitan issues such as noise, light pollution and unsustainable energy use.
