Sairi Forsman (born 1964 in Mexico City, Distrito Federal) is a Mexican[1] sculptor of Danish descent.

Throughout her creative process, Sairi Forsman has gone through different stages, all of them equally relevant: first, sculpture inspired by an early cubism; then entangled bodies, knot-forms with rounded outlines that tell stories about ancient mythologies of Western Culture; then stylized and simplified curves, reducing round forms into thin lines until they reach their final consequence: bones, vertebras and spines that support the original perspective of the human being immersed in his own interiority. At the same time other arts constitute an inexhaustible source for her work: literature, painting, dance, sculpture and cinema.

Her creations are no doubt an integral part of the whole contemporary world of art. She has participated in collective exhibitions and has had one-man shows that have been sponsored by relevant institutions, such as the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, the Poliforum Cultural Siquieros and the Palacio de Mineria. Her work has been published by the art magazine "Artes de Mexico" as well as the European Economic Community. She has won the Nordic Arts Center fellowship in Helsinki, Finland. The sculptures "Fantasy I", "Temptation", "Perses", "The Cannibal" and "Au Prin-Temps" are large scale pieces. They are installed in public places and are on permanent view.
