As one of the most outstanding conceptual artists among young German sculptors today, Michael Sailstorfer (born in 1979) works with objects from nature, urban space, and art history. Strategies of reversal and reinterpretation are used to take up functions that he thinks through to the end, taking them to absurd lengths. He removes things from their original purpose, dissecting, deforming, and adapting them to reassemble them anew. In this way, powerful installations emerge that reveal the creative potential of our immediate everyday environment. Over the past fifteen years, Sailstorfer has created a significant body of work that has received international acclaim and marks a unique position in contemporary sculptural discourse.
