Lives and works in Berlin 

 

Active since 2001 with an educational background from Akademie der Bildenden Künste (Munich) in Munich and an MA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College (London), Sailstorfer is represented by multiple international galleries and with over 180 exhibitions, shows in the Americas and heavily across Europe, with works in private and public collections including the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Sammlung Goetz (Munich), and S.M.A.K. (Gent). His works are a playful and mischievous exploration into the industrial materials that surround us, how we function in relation to them, and then how he can eviscerate all perceptions of their physical limitations in largely installation-based works.
