Sculptor and designer, Louie Hinnen, recreates domestic interiors that become surreal when seen in abstract. The installation at The Invisible Dog will be two interactive sculptural structures. They will appear to be separate, but their functions will be dependent upon one another. Viewers will be encouraged to interact with the installation and control their movement.
Originally from Missouri, Louie Hinnen attended the Kansas City Art Institute for undergraduate studies and holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Hinnen’s work consists mostly of sculpture and installations exploring the complexities of life and the human condition through familiar imagery and domestic settings. Louie Hinnen and his wife Natalia live and work in Brooklyn, NY.
He was a recent resident at the Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY where his work is installed in their summer exhibition “Homeward Found.” His installation “Cornbread and Buttermilk” is on display at the Wassaic Project until September 2nd. Then, it will be moved to the Invisible Dog as a part of a two part interactive installation.
