Michael Sailstorfer

Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh

NOW CLOSED

German artist Michael Sailstorfer uses familiar objects as a starting point for his idiosyncratic experiments with installation, film and sculpture. The artist constantly transforms known material and mechanical systems into objects that thoughtfully transcend their original purpose. Facets of their function are gently shared through clues and tensions that offer a hint towards the transformation – a car wheel endlessly grinding against a gallery wall; the windows of a room shattered by high-frequency sound.

Sailstorfer encourages his audience to experience sound and smell before sight is engaged. It is within this context that the artist presents three installations at Jupiter Artland: 1:43-47 (2012), Brenner (2017) and Tränen (2015). Find out more about the Michael Sailstorfer exhibition from Jupiter Artland’s website.
