Lives and works in Berlin, Germany

邁克爾·塞爾斯道弗

Michael Sailstorfer primarily works in sculpture and installation, as well as painting, performance, photography, and film. His conceptual-adjacent aesthetics revolves around a notion of sculptural expansion, which refers to the ability of his art to transcend its own format by deploying into the surrounding space. Ranging in scale from nearly imperceptible interventions to highly elaborate productions, his minimalistic and often absurd visions poetically disrupt the everyday. Whether car tires, wrecking balls, popcorn machines, or simple trees, he systematically diverts familiar objects from their original functions and frames of reference into alternative contexts of meaning. While he is deeply interested in the possibilities offered by formal instability, the recurrent use of kinetic devices paired with his ever-subtle preparation and transformation of materials actually allows him to introduce temporality and life into his oeuvre. Sailstorfer further pushes his practice beyond physicality by playfully experimenting with intangible qualities such as smell, sound, energy, and light.
