Simon Heijdens

Simon Heijdens' work ranges from site specific installations to objects. Having studied experimental film and design at the University of Berlin and Design academy Eindhoven, his work is merging narrative and tangible, and has a returning thematic that looks to trace and reveal the hidden character of spaces, and how these relate to their use.

Heijdens' work has been exhibited extensively, such as in MoMA New York, V&A London, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Winzavod Moscow, and is represented in the permanent collections of The Art Institute of Chicago, MoMA New York, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam and Fonds National d'Art Contemporain France. Commissions and collaborations include Swarovski Crystal Palace, Droog, Contrast Gallery Shanghai, and Gallery Libby Sellers.
