Born in Brussels, Belgium, 1961.

Carsten Höller has built a worldwide reputation with intriguing works somewhere between sculpture and large-scale installations. If the situations he creates are intended to generate a degree of uncertainty, the experience is also part of a network of correlations through which meaning circulates without ever becoming fixed.
