Is this Painting?

Dominik Halmer’s paintings and pictorial objects are based on the idea of connecting painting to real space. Three-dimensional objects like wooden rings and balls interact with painted elements and gestures. Different levels of reality, which are connected through visual analogies, collide in a poetic and associative unity. Halmer plays with an internal system of references that suggests a rule-based relationship between canvas painting, object, and spatial sign. In the installation Territory, Dominik Halmer places graphic symbols on the wall that let the individual works play off one another by engaging in a dialogue addressing fundamental ideas about the nature of processes and meaning. The catalogue contains numerous installation views and a conversation with the artist.

DOMINIK HALMER (*1978, Munich) studied philosophy and art history at the Humboldt University Berlin, then Fine Arts at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Albert Oehlen and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Heimo Zobernig. Halmer lives and works in Berlin.
