Exhibition Reality Check" Isenburger Schloss Offenbach

"For his 'Journeyman's Piece' Rudi Weissbeck refers to Martin Kippenberger. He appropriates and uses his approach of discussing problems, requirements and prerequisites of sculpture through sculpture in his own work. The work encompasses the documentation of the so called perfect drape of an old carpet, the performance that created it as well as the use of a post card of post cards. Discussing the frailty and the possibility of failing one's own expectations the work oscillates between playful humour and associative poetics, finding its way in artistic autonomy. This is exemplified in the brim of a hat that is continued in a digitally extended, flamingo coloured neon bow under a cloud covered ceiling."

 

- Andreas Schlaegel (curator & critic for Flash Art International, Frieze d/e, Billedkunst ...)

"Deutsche Börse together with the Offenbach University of Art (HfG) presented the 'Deutsche Börse und HfG Fotoförderpreis' (Deutsche Börse and University of Art Photo Advancement Award 2015) on 10 July. This year's winners are Malte Sänger and Rudi Weissbeck. The award has been presented since 2010 to students at the University of Art and Design who focus on the medium of photography.

 

This year's jury comprised photographer Barbara Klemm, President of the University of Art Professor Bernd Kracke, and curator of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse Anne-Marie Beckmann. The presentation was made as part of the annual show at the Offenbach HfG. [...]

 

Rudi Weissbeck's 'Journeyman's Piece' (Gesellenstück) is a successful associative examination of depiction and creation of reality. Weissbeck reveals the wide variety of technical and visual possibilities of the photography medium in his precisely composed arrangement of different motives in the room."
