Heinrich Dunst

Heinrich Dunst was born in 1955 in Hallein (Salzburg, Austria), He lives and works in Vienna. Dunst creates spatial interventions and performances that navigate the gap between what can be seen and what can be said, the untranslatability of one form into another, and the contextual nature of spatial presentations. Dunst's conceptual approach is rooted both in the work of artists like Marcel Broodthaers who scrutinize the systems underlying the perception of words and images, and in the Viennese scene of the 1980s and its characteristic ambition to extend abstract painting into the exhibition space. He lends these complex issues fresh interest by developing forms into correlations and pointedly questioning the seemingly unequivocal meaning of the elements through variation, superimposition, and changes of direction. Solo exhibitions include Halle für Kunst Steiermark, Graz (2023), Galerie der Stadt Schwaz (2015), Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna (1997) among others. His work has been included in group shows at Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2023), Belvedere 21, Vienna (2021), Neuer Kunstverein Wien, Vienna (2020), Halle für Kunst und Medien, Graz (2016), Ludwig Forum Aachen (2015) and many more.
