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 in 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.
