Carsten Höller (Belgium)

Artist Carsten Holler works to turn reality on its head, creating situations through which we can reimagine how we move through the world and reconsider our place in it. Drawing on social spaces outside the museum, such as the amusement park, zoo, or playground, the interactions that Holler proposes through objects and situations open up a range of new and unexpected sensory revelations in art. With each slow turn, participants are carried further into a gleaming, gilded looking-glass reflection, a step and a world away.
