Choose from Shrimp, Octopus, Salmon, Red Caviar, Tuna and Mazasushi (Trout apparently)… or dine out on all of them.
Michael Sailstorfer’s artistic position is to constantly question and expand the classical notion of sculpture. With his often elaborately produced works he puts the processes of daily life in unusual relationships towards each other. He incorporates light, sound and smell within his installations thereby generating images of poetic power. His installation of a hanging car tire rotating in vain and rubbing against the wall without being able to get away, became renowned in 2005. In doing so the tire abrades and spreads a typical pungent odor. He dedicated his first big solo exhibition 2012 in Berlin to the central theme of the forest. In the installation „Forst (forest)“ five upside down hanging trees which rotate slowly occupy the whole of the ten meter high exhibition space. In the same year Michael Sailstorfer was awarded the Vattenfall Contemporary 2012. (via Monochromatic Axonometric)

Martin’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour. Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published. More here.
