The catalogue „Vertigo“ documents a journey from Berlin to Northampton and the exhibitions based on this trip. On her journey, Heike Gallmeier built temporary installations from found materials in a transporter that she converted into a mobile home and studio. On her way through Germany, Holland, Belgium, France and Great Britain, she avoided highways and major roads. Instead of choosing the shortest routes she followed rural roads and wandered through residential areas. When she arrived at her destination, the NN Contemporary Art in Northampton, she moved the contents of the van into the exhibition space, and, along with large format photographs, combined the materials found along the way to create new installations.
Heike Gallmeier works across media, from sculpture, installation to photography. Found objects and other materials are gathered and assembled into large installations, that result into photographs.
