With a reputation for eccentricity, wit, and intellect, Andreas Slominski produces concept-driven works that explore daily experience and personal obsession. Slominski established his provocative reputation with a series of humorous interventions—planting a dead tree stump among the lindens of Berlin, staging an art show opening with no art except the artist himself lurking in the hedges, coaxing a giraffe to lick a stamp. His best known works are sculptural installations that transform everyday objects into curious occasions for reflection and interaction, as in his 2005 exhibition of a series of "traps" set for various creatures. For Sperm (2012), he (allegedly) splashed gallery walls and floors with the semen of men and bulls.
