Collection: MICHAEL SAILSTORFER SALEROOM

Michael Sailstorfer was born in Velden, Germany, in 1979. He currently lives and works in Berlin. In his work, the artist recharges experimental design. This expansion delves further into a concrete relationship with the biographical. Whereas the forests and fields of Sailstorfer’s home region have up until now played an integral role, the biographical aspect is now depicted in his own father’s work with which he grew up. Behind the specific biographical references, a universal space of tension in the medium is illuminated upon within the growing conflict between conceptual and gestural actions, the space in which sculpture can position itself, and a sculpture’s ability to evoke resistance, between abstraction and figuration, and last but not least, between the old and the young.

From 1999 until 2005, he studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, and received his MA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College, London in 2004. His work has been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the world, including Michael Sailstorfer.
