HeHe is an artist duo consisting of Helen Evans (French, British) and Heiko Hansen (German) based in Le Havre, France.

HeHe makes artwork about the social, industrial, and ecological paradoxes found in today’s landscapes. Their practice explores the relationship between the individual and their urban environment. Using a variety of media, HeHe reverse cultural engineers established links between society and technological progress. Their performance installations are placed in real-world environments or eerie staged settings and become theatrical devices. With humor, romance and ingenuity, their work opens alternative readings to the narrative of ecology and industry.

HeHe has installed large-scale works in public space and created site-specific performances. Bridging between media arts, design, and contemporary art, they have exhibited and worked in many cultural, academic, and research contexts in France and internationally. Their work is present in public and private collections. HeHe is represented by the gallery Aeroplastics Contemporary in Bruxelles.

Both Helen and Heiko are teaching at the École Supérieur d'Art et Design du Havre where they initiated and are responsible for the Master unit Art Media Environment.
