La galerie de la Biennale
Systematically giving the viewer a central role, the works of the HeHe collective cover an enormous range from ecology to sociology, perception to chromatic effect, play to reality. Lightly and humorously their little devices deal with problems – air pollution, electricity consumption – that worry and involve us all, but which we only ever combat in the laziest possible way. Starting with the notion that an electric toy car is only a model of a much bigger, heavily polluting gas-guzzler, HeHe has come up with a performance titled “Toy Emissions”, which uses a remote-controlled car to disturb the traffic in big cities. Blowing a trail of thick, coloured smoke and equipped with an on-board camera, the tiny vehicle zips about among its big brothers and sisters, achieving maximum visual impact with a minimum of means.
