Roland Biermann Bonn, Germany, b. 1962
Roland Biermann lives and works in London. With his photographic work Biermann explores uncertainty, ambivalence and transformation, situations where reality and fiction merge, often in the form of polyptychs and larger sequences of images.
In the past, Biermann has received grants e.g. from the German Foreign Office (Think German, 2010), Arts Council England (2005) and Goethe-Institut London (2004). He is the only artist in over 30 years to win the Weissblechkalender project by ThyssenKrupp, a worldwide-unique, exclusive arts calendar printed on tinplate, twice (2007 and 2010). Recent solo exhibitions include Galerie du Monde Hong Kong (2016), Goethe-Institut Paris (2011), German Embassy London (2010/11) and Dommuseum Frankfurt (2010).
