Michael Sailstorfer
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.

PROYECTOSMONCLOVA was established in 2005 in Mexico City as an experimental platform for emerging artists. Expanding and consolidating its program over the years, the gallery has evolved into one of the most important forums for contemporary art in Mexico, with an emphasis on the dialogue between local and international artists from different generations.
