Born 1959, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin.
Andreas Slominski explores the visual value of everyday objects that usually are not associated with great aesthetic significance.
The objects become a matter of sculptural exploration, where the artist makes humorous interventions to cause indistinctness in the familiar objects. Slominski is well known for his polystyrene images and his sculptural “traps”. In his large, colorful pictures, Slominski carves motives out of Styrofoam boards, while his “trap”-series are fully functioning traps designed as sculptural objects appearing both as absurd and humorous.
