Forst

Michael Sailstorfer's multilayered installation Forst is currently showing at Berlinische Galerie.  Five trees hung upside down from the gallery ceiling are constantly being rotated on a motor.  The sense of smell, sound, movement and time are all elements of the installation.  Sailstorfer displays here a tug of war between the artificial system and the natural.  Surprisingly (or not surprisingly), neither side is a predominant winner.
