Andreas Slominski is a prominent German artist known for his explorations of the everyday and the ordinary through his sculptures and installations. His works combine playfulness, humor, and dark irony to explore themes of existentialism and the human condition. Among his best-known works are Hi-Fi Man, Ampelmann, the Beamtenwand and the Tenten Figure. Hi-Fi Man, a public sculpture situated in the Kunstverein in Hamburg, is a humorous take on the figure of a lone balding man listening to headphones in a glass box. Ampelmann, located in Berlin, is a sculpture reminiscent of a traffic light figure, which inverts the traditional power relationship of the state and its citizens. The Beamtenwand is a closed room locked with an upright beam, while the Tenten Figure is an installation of a figure trapped in an oscillating tent-like structure.
