German artist Andreas Slominski (born 1959) explores the still fertile realm of the readymade, appropriating such functional objects as bicycles, windmills and other found materials which he then reproposes as freestanding sculptures, or which he incorporates, with the use of spray paint, into polystyrene wall reliefs. Slominski always intends his sculptures to elicit the more absurd qualities of the props of everyday life. Though the artist is perhaps best known for his work as an absurdist sculptor, Slominski is also a veteran of absurdist performance: he once famously charged two mimes with the task of carrying an invisible painting from the Royal College of Art to the Serpentine in London. For another similarly wacky work, he had a giraffe in a zoo lick a stamp for a letter he then sent. This monograph surveys the artist's work from 1996 to the present.
