Past exhibitions


24 June – 3 September 2017

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.

Andreas Slominski consistently makes use of aesthetic dual strategies. His dramatically staged artistic bids are rarely honoured. They make the audience doubt their own sanity, demanding that the rules of art and boundaries be redefined.

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