Michael Sailstorfer

Michael Sailstorfer *1979, Vilsbiburg, DE, lives and works in Berlin, DE. He works in various fields of sculpture and installation as well as painting, performance, photography and film. Among other things, he uses everyday objects as material for performative installations. He disassembles things and reassembles them in a new way. Spaces are being transformed. Meaningful shifts of context are presented with a wink. Whether car tires, wrecking balls, popcorn machines or simple trees, he systematically steers familiar objects out of their original functions and frames of reference and into new contexts of meaning. Sailstorfer pushes his practice further beyond physicality by playfully experimenting with immaterial qualities such as smell, sound, energy and light.
