About

The Zabludowicz Collection has three distinct sites on the island of Sarvisalo, and each one requires some travel to get to. What better way to relax upon your arrival than to sit on a comfortable bench and watch the world go by? Whether dangerously tall, broken, buried or sprung like a see-saw, Danish artist Jeppe Hein's benches ask to be interacted with in ways which are mildly subversive.
