  • Artist Biography

    Andreas Slominski

    German • 1953

    Andreas Slominski produces concept-driven works that explore daily experience and personal obsession. Known for his eccentricity, Slominski established his reputation within the art world with a series of humorous happenings—for instance, coaxing a giraffe to lick a stamp for a letter, planting a dead tree stump among the Linden trees of Berlin and staging an art show opening with no art except himself lurking in the hedges. His most celebrated works are sculptural installations that transform everyday objects into small curiosities requiring contemplation and reflection.
