Carsten Höller uses his past training as a scientist in his work as an artist, concentrating particularly on the nature of human relationships. Often creating situations that alter our interaction with the world, Höller explores human relations and perceptions through participatory works that prompt us to reimagine the way we move through the world. Born in Brussels in 1961, he now lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden and Biriwa, Ghana. Notable installations and exhibitions include “Doubt” at Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan (2016); “Decision” at Hayward Gallery, London (2015); “LEBEN” at TBA21– Augarten, Vienna (2014); “Experience” at the New Museum, New York (2011); a presentation of the Revolving Hotel Room at the Guggenheim, New York (2010); a series of giant slides Test Site at Tate Modern (2006); an installation of full-size funfair rides Amusement Park at MASS MoCA (2006); as well as presentations at the Berlin Biennale, Venice Biennale and Gwangju Biennale.
