PROYECTOSMONCLOVA is pleased to announce the opening of CLOUDS AND TEARS by Michael Sailstorfer (Velden/Vils, Germany, 1979).
The exhibition brings together works in sculpture, video, and site specific intervention that expound upon the artist’s penchant for finding poesy in praxis.
In his first solo presentation in Mexico City, Sailstorfer plays with refuse of the Anthropocene to poetically compose a metaphysical universe which examines consciousness, time, rebirth and wear. Through durational and object-based works he suggests the possibility of a new metaphysical order in which humans’ being is not necessarily exclusively privileged.
Sailstorfer’s work has been exhibited in various international institutions including at Sharjha Biennial 8, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; Swiss Institute, New York, USA; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA; Berlinische Galerie, Berlin, Germany; Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, Bonn, Germany; Casa del Lago, Mexico City, Mexico; Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, Spain; K20, Düsseldorf, Germany; Martin-Gropious-Bau, Berlin, Germany; Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo, Norway; Public Art Fund, New York, USA; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany; and Stedelĳk Museum voor Actual Kunst Gent, Ghent, Belgium. His work forms part of international public collections among them the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; Fondazione Morra Greco, Naples, Italy; MUSEION, Bolzano, Italy; Sammlung Boros, Berlin, Germany; Sammlung Goetz, Munich, Germany; Vanhaerents Art Collection, Brussels, Belgium; Städel Museum, Frankfurt, Germany; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA.
