In Jeppe Hein’s work, ‘modified park benches,’ the benches give the slight impression of having been genetically modified, as if obliging their users to adapt themselves to the new form.  Other benches seem to have been purposefully damaged, but not to the point of total disrepair.  What the pieces have in common is that they all direct our attention, in a subtle and ingenious manner, towards their presence and sub-functionality.
