ANDREAS SLOMINSKI: DAS U DES TURHUTERS (THE O OF THE DOORKEEPER). Ed. by Dirk Lunckow. Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, 2016. Published in association with Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783864421815 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: German absurdist sculptor Andreas Slominski (b. 1959) explores the realm of the readymade, appropriating bicycles, windmills, animal traps and now ports-potties as freestanding sculptures or wall reliefs. This extensively illustrated monograph documents Slominski's large-scale installations of 100 red, green and blue plastic toilets with urinals, toilet seats, toilet roll holders or vent pipes arranged like colorful paintings on the walls of the Deichttorhallen, Hamburg. Though the artist is perhaps best known for his work as an absurdist sculptor, he is also a veteran of absurdist performance -- once famously having charged two mimes with carrying an invisible painting from the Royal College of Art to the Serpentine in London. Andreas Slominski's solo exhibitions include Museum fur Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; Serpentine Gallery, London; Fondazione Prada, Milan; Museum Boijmans van Beuningin, Rotterdam; Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin; and Kunsthalle Zurich, and is represented by Metro Pictures, US. Essays by museum curator Dirk Luckow plus Sasa Stanisic and Dorte Zbikowski explicate the work.
