A group of voices accompanies me in the exhibition. They are singing words I cannot comprehend, yet the warm tunes are familiar: folk songs, love songs, songs of longing. There are letters, too.

Heinrich Dunst studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with Peter Weibel and Bazon Brock. Österreichischer Kunstpreis 2016
Heinrich Dunst combines pictorial, sculptural, and language elements in his works to create intermedial intersections. His 'meta-linguistic' spatial interventions and performances navigate the gap between what is visible and what can be expressed in language, the impossibility of translating one form into another, and the contexture of spatial presentations. His conceptual approach is rooted in concrete poetry, the Viennese art scene of the 1980s (which strove to expand abstract painting into the exhibition space), and artistic positions like Marcel Broodthaers, who investigate how words and images are perceived. Dunst lends these perspectives new currency by questioning the clarity of the references they evoke, thereby exposing the foundations of art.
Along with numerous performances, Heinrich Dunst’s works have been exhibited at the National Gallery in Prague, Czech Republic (with works by Franz West); Künstlerhaus Graz, Austria; Ludwigforum Aachen, Germany; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Belvedere Wien–21er Haus, Vienna; Kunsthalle Krems, Austria; Galerie der Stadt Schwaz, Austria; Secession, Vienna; MUMOK Museum Moderner Kunst, Vienna; MAK Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Vienna; Hochschule der Bildenden Künste, Braunschweig, Germany; and Artothek, Cologne, Germany.
Heinrich Dunst‘s works can be found in such collections as the Generali Foundation, Salzburg, Austria; Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria; MAK Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna; MUMOK Museum moderner Kunst, Vienna; Neue Galerie Graz, Graz, Austria; Belvedere, Vienna; the Gabi and Wilhelm Schürmann Collection, Herzogenrath, Germany; and the Sigrid and Franz Wojda Collection, Vienna.
