This collection of Andreas Slominski's recent work includes Christmas ornaments and all kinds of constructions, including traps, made in a host of materials and techniques. They range from large, aggressive-looking boxes for fighting dogs to toys, like "Van for Mice," that let the underdog off the hook. Once arranged on the floor of an exhibition space, these snares create a bit of a minefield, an environment where visitors tread with care. Some experiential pieces share the traps' lighthearted focus on practical matters and working professions: the hiring of frogmen to rescue keys thrown from a bridge, of a skyscraper painter to work on a high window, and of seamstresses to take apart and put back together viewers' pants--after which they sew in a label marking them as part of a limited edition. With a preface by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli.
