Alexander Heim

°1977, Hamburg (DE) - lives and works in London (UK) and Hamburg (DE)

Alexander Heim’s practice reclaims moments of wonder and beauty from the squalor of cityscapes through video, installation and sculpture. His work examines things that happen, despite the planned nature of the urban environment, on their own. In the altered scheme of nature conceived by Heim, conventional distinctions between ‘natural’ and ‘man-made’ are disrupted. Rather than holding up the moral card of environmentalism, his observations appear to provide a view of nature in which everything has its place.

Among others, Alexander Heim has had solo exhibitions in Kunstverein, Freiburg; ICA, London; and Margini Arte Contemporanea, Massa. Recent group exhibitions, which featured work of Heim, include Museum Tinguely, Basel; Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn; Figge von Rosen Galerie, Berlin; Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau; and The Approach in London.

His work can also be found in several permanent collections, such as the Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museum Collection; Bundeskunstsammlung Bonn; and the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
