Sierra Metro is proud to present a body of new work encompassing film, sculpture and installation, by Edinburgh-based Austrian artist Johannes Sailer.


Echoing Sailer's filmwork ‘The Archivist', which sees an afflicted and lonely figure become con- sumed by his own obsessions, Sailer here presents an unrealised stage-set. The film's central persona plays marionette to his own anxieties, fast switching between reality and the unmeasurable burden which he carries, causing him to enter into a series of confusions — a tenet reflected in this new installation. This teasingly recognisable environment works to question the roles of prop and sculpture, set and scene, and in turn interrogates the tools which we use to separate fantasy from fiction and on-screen life from material being.
