  • Catalogue Essay

    “Conceptually speaking, [Michael Reisch’s] photographs are… profoundly sculptural, although they are by no means restricted to pure representation of depicted subjects. It is rather the specific form in which images are constructed that characterizes the works of both Michael Reisch and Bernd and Hilla Becher. Reisch studied under Bernd Becher at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf in the early nineteen-nineties. Although his corresponding fundamental position is likely to have been clarified through direct contact with Becher, photography and sculpture had long since become the two most important focal points of Reisch’s work. In the nineteen-eighties, he had studied both photography and sculpture at the Gerrit Rietveld Akademic in Amsterdam... For Michael, photography has become the setting for sculptural manipulations which both create and deconstruct reality in his photographs.”
