The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Frank Berendt

Stehende Strömung
„It is first and foremost the inner coherence of Frank Berendt’s work that attests to a continuous, often despairing search for a form capable of pointing, like a hint of missing, towards the beauty of a world of images that is in the process of dissolving. […] What [his] work most notably illustrates is the way the artist’s work has revolved around a central question over a period of more than twenty years: he seems to have committed himself to the paradox of a living immobility; he attempts to capture precisely the sensuality, the tangibility, of a dissolving image. In paintings and videos he works with the impossibility of, on the one hand, an image which is frozen: motion solidified, and on the other, with the desire to hold onto fleeting beauty.“ (Anja Kampmann)
