Gregor Sailer

Award-winning Austrian Photographer Gregor Sailer (b. 1980) has been exploring the employment of fake architectural monuments within a variety of socio-economic contexts, both historical and current. A selection from this body of work, which he published in his seminal book “The Potemkin Village” will be exhibited at BNKR, with some photographs executed as wallpaper installations to transform the visual perception of the gallery spaces. Sailer’s work has been internationally exhibited in spaces such as Centre de la Photographie (Geneva), the Albertina (Vienna), and Germanisches Nationalmuseum (Nuremberg). It has been featured in a number of photo festivals such as Les Rencontres de la Photographie (Arles), Foto Forum (Bolzano) and the Delhi Photo Festival.
