"Tom Bergmann discovered the pleasure of walking the lines. The static sharpens his senses for the mobile and the fleeting encourages his longing for the permanent. His films, like his pictures are filled with this highly developed sensitiivity. His chosen title "triviality" is seen by me as an almost coquettish understatement. For what he depicts, is recognized as crucial in the way he chose to capture it. Looking at his work will get us involved - we learn about life - his depiction is discreet and seemingly unspectacular - but yet full of poetry. "
