“Objective / Correlative” deals with the impossibility of perfectly reflecting the world in images or words and illustrates the differences between spoken signals and graphic forms, symbols and pictures by placing these various descriptive modalities alongside and on top of one another.
The work describes not only a philosophical and artistic problem, but also the daily challenge for knowledge workers such as consultants, one of whose roles is to gain an accurate insight into the functioning of a corporation.
Heinrich Dunst (*1955)
The incongruence of word and image and the experience of the “cracks” which separate these two spheres have been central to Dunst’s work from the very outset. With “Objective / Correlative” he took this dialogue to another, more radical level by integrating objective images into his visual grammar.
Heinrich Dunst’s works can be found in numerous collections in both Austria and abroad, including both the MAK (Austrian Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna) and the Liaunig Collection. He lives in Vienna.
