Invisible Spaces III
- to vanish
curated by Daniela von Damaros
Bar K Berlin Gallery, Köthener Str. 28, 10963 Berlin
Worn or dusty floors, cracked and discolored wallpaper, smells in the walls – all of these are relics of once existing and functioning architectures, working and living spaces. Similar traces of such vanished places are also condensed in the multi-media room installation by Heike Gallmeier, shown as third part of the exhibition series „Invisible Spaces“ in the former Bar K. Gallmeiers method of deconstructing space by means of a fragmentation of her artistic medium of painting intensifies the process of disappearance and at the same time reveals a potential of the resulting void. Gallmeier's work challenges the viewer to constantly reorient themselves, to move in the installation. The emptiness that once arose through the dissolution of space offers a scope for movement that opens up unimaginable perspectives.
