Andreas Slominski

  • Keep off the floor!
    June 24, 2017 - September 3, 2017
    Museum Jorn
    Gudenåvej 7-9
    Silkeborg, Denmark

    The presentation of Andreas Slominski’s art at Museum Jorn is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Denmark.

    The internationally renowned German concept and found-object artist Andreas Slominski (b.1959) is known for his humorous exploration of the art world. Inspired by the satirical Dada movement, the minimalist art of the 1960s, and Marcel Duchamp’s ready-mades that seek the artistic qualities of industrially produced objects and the messages contained in them, Slominski creates his own artistic universe. This includes e.g. modified everyday objects, devices for trapping animals and thoughts, conceivably walled-in body parts, assemblages of plastic portable toilets, or finds of a contemporary archaeological nature such as ice lolly sticks and dusters.

  • THE O OF THE DOOR
    May 14, 2016 - August 21, 2016
    Museum Deichtorhallen
    Hamburg, Germany

    In his latest series of works, Andreas Slominski deals with portable toilets − "the human being in the voting booth" (Slominski) − which are part of the landscape of our cities. In the exhibition the artist will present some 200 of these mobile plastic toilets. Some of these portable toilets can be seen in a strange inversion as decorative pictorial objects on the wall – objects of a Mephistophelian view of the world. The fixtures of such portable toilets, including the urinal, the toilet seat, the toilet paper holder, and the ventilation pipe, are arranged on the walls or in the room like colorful panel paintings.

  • RIDING A SADDLE ROOF
    October 21, 2012 - January 13, 2013
    MUSEUM DHONDT-DHAENENS, BELGIUM

    Andreas Slominski’s exhibition “Riding A Saddle Roof” at the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Belgium, showcases an all-encompassing project.

    The artist reflects on the relationship between form and function in order to provoke in the viewer a sense of unease and discomfort as he rethinks everyday life objects and situations.

    The exhibition consists in enigmatic structures that challenge the viewers’ ability to decipher the relationship between the design and the purpose of the artwork and thus creates a unique yet haunting experience.
