Andreas Slominski

Kunsthalle Zurich
Limmatstrasse 270
August 22–October 18, 1998

Andreas Slominski might be described as part handyman, part quixotic philosopher. His fabricated or reconfigured everyday items, like dust rags or matchsticks, force the viewer to question the interplay between seeing something and knowing it. This summer in Zürich, Slominski will exhibit a selection of his various snarelike objects—ranging from tiny mousetraps to large contraptions that are both menacing and absurd—and a group of old calendar remnants that resemble minimalist drawings (the show also promises a new site-specific installation by the Hamburg-based artist). The accompanying catalogue is edited by Kunsthalle director Bernhard Bürgi, who is also the show's curator.
