The Berlin artist Michael Sailstorfer’s works reveal his interest in everyday things and the materials of his immediate surroundings, as well as his casual fascination with these objects’ specific identity and history. Sailstorfer really takes care of these items, breaks them down into their component parts, deforms them, adapts them, and assembles them again, reinterpreting them to create powerful installations.
