Björn Dahlem

As a sculptor working in the contemporary mold, the point of departure for Björn Dahlem’s creative output is fragility rather than stability. With a profound knowledge of intellectual and cultural history, he projects complex scientific schematics into the artistic field. His sculptures and installations are usually produced using everyday materials from hardware stores and junk shops. They translate the great mysteries of mankind, from the origins of the universe to the nature of the human condition, into new variations of a unique artistic language—a particular vocabulary whose intrinsic humor makes the boundaries of human knowledge both tangible and feasible. His frequent use of lighting elements such as bulbs and neon tubes epitomizes the illuminating qualities of his precisely conceived work.


Dahlem has participated in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad, including MoCA Taipeh, Kunstmuseum Stuttgart,Kunstve rein Braunschweig, Kunsthalle Rostock, Mudam Luxembourg, Quadriennale Düsseldorf, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, La Conservera, Murcia, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, FRAC, Marseilles, Kunstverein Hannover, Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, Van Bommel Museum, Venlo, and Matadero Contemporary Art Center in Madrid.
