The artist is interested in the structural transformation of landscape and the complex political, military, and economic implications of architecture. This takes him to remote, inhospitable parts of the world, Potemkin villages and places that are only accessible to a few people. Sailer’s photos are deserted, the buildings on them often seem like sculptures. Whether climate change, political conflicts, or an excessive need for security—Sailer’s pictures reveal the dynamics that lead to the existence of these places. KUNST HAUS WIEN is dedicating a first major exhibition in Austria to Gregor Sailer. The Tyrolean photo artist, born in 1980, has received many awards, his photos have been shown in numerous publications and exhibitions and are represented in public and private collections.
