Sascha Pohle's artistic practice has been developing across media for several years. In his exhibitions, he plays with archaeological and anthropological evocations, in which handcrafted or machine-made things such as films, textiles, glass, or ceramics are executed as installations, collections, and performative presentations. His works, which oscillate between reality and fiction, are characterized by distances, ruptures, and overlaps that arise through progress, human movement, and cultural transfer. He often works in series that resemble a photographic approach, not as a medium, but with a conceptual methodology of for example capturing imprints as surface structures or patterns in personal and public environments as well as in and with found objects. Considered documents, they are reinterpreted, transformed, abstracted, and transferred to other materials to create new and fluid narratives that move between individual and social, familiar and alien, high and low, nature and culture, presence and absence, memory and oblivion, micro and macro.
He also initiates group exhibitions in collaboration with other artists.

Sascha Pohle lives and works in Seoul and Düsseldorf.
