Inaccessible landscapes, sealed-off territories or restricted military areas: In his works, Gregor Sailer shows surreal architectures at the margins of human civilisation.

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 its first major exhibition in Austria to the photo artist. Sailer's images open up access to the world of fakes, copies and backdrops and question these sometimes absurd excesses of our contemporary society
