Michael Sailstorfer, born in Vilsbiburg (Germany) in 1979, "can be defined an enfant prodige, if every child was not a prodige. The 21st century has kicked off with a storm of spatial conceptualists and Michael is right there riding the wave. He is what Prince would call a sign of the times."
Michael Sailstorfer studied at the Akademie der Bildenden KÃ¼nste in Munich and received his MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2004. His work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at Johann KÃ¶nig Gallery in Berlin, Galerie Zink & Gegner in Munich, Jack Hanley Gallery in Los Angeles, and the MARTa Museum in Herford, among others. He has participated in many large-scale international exhibitions including Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian (2004), the 14th Sydney Biennial (2004), the Liverpool Biennial (2004), and the Yokohama Triennale (2005). He has also shown in many group exhibitions at venues such as the Zentrum fÃ¼r Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe, Andrew Kreps Gallery and Artists Space in New York, the Hamburger Kunsthalle, Museum Tinguely in Basel, the Barbican Centre in London, and the Ludwig-Forum fÃ¼r Internationale Kunst in Aachen, among many others. Sailstorfer also recently published a new book entitled Fur Immer war Gestern (Forever was Yesterday) and edited by Nicolas Schafhausen.
Michael Sailstorfer has entered global art discourses with his poetic transformations of everyday materials. Often using a romantic and pseudoscientific approach to his chosen material, he plays with the function of the original object through a process of deconstruction and reconfiguration.
