PAINTER | GERMANY
Lars Fischer, born in Leipzig, studied free art/painting at the AdBK Nuremberg and the UdK Berlin. Biographically, he finds himself in an artist genealogy that is characterized by a permanent polarity reversal of his own magnetic field between East German experience and West German contempt, memories of utopias and toxic, defiant nostalgia.
In Lars Fischer's works often mediate objects between the communicating parties. Sometimes they appear central, sometimes fragmentary, and point clearly beyond their pure practical value. They don't just know what they can do and what they are worth, but also act as memory containers. They refer to exuberant consumption and the authorities who control it, on all kinds of stimulants and their low satiation value as well as on future plans, that didn't get past the drawing board.
