In 1978, Arno Fischer and Sibylle Bergemann bought a farmhouse in Margaretenhof and converted it into a place to both live and work. They laid out a garden and a pond and built aviaries for all sorts of birds. Since then, Arno Fischer has used an SX 70 Polaroid camera to take succinct photographs in his refuge. He is interested in the distancing effect caused by the individuality of the Polaroids as well as in being able to immediately produce a unique result without any further processing. The artist arranges the Polaroids into triptychs and in doing so achieves evidence that brings to mind Paul Klee’s saying about the “essential character of the accidental.” A selection of photographs from thirty years of work is being published here for the first time in book form.
