Florian Slotawa: Solothurn, aussen was published on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition at Kunstverein Solothurn in 2008.

By regrouping the sculptures of the park of Kunstmuseum Solothurn and compacting their placement, Slotawa creates new relationships between the objects, their placement, and the park's visitors. He interrogates the functions of the park in terms of aesthetics, action, and perception, and restages the ensemble anew. In the project Solothurn, aussen the artist continues his way of working where he always starts: with the given situation. Often, found objects from everyday life and art become sculptural material in his work; the artist takes pictures, sculptures, and objects, furniture, cars, tableware, and other everyday objects and combines them to form temporary sculptural arrangements. In so doing, he analyzes the constellations they present to him on site and transfers them to a new order of their own.

The publication is accompanied by an essay by Sabine Rusterholz as well as an interview between the artist Florian Slotawa and Andreas Fiedler.

Florian Slotawa

Florian Slotawa (b. 1972 in Rosenheim) is a German artist who is known for his creative approach of exchange and reevaluation between art and the quotidian, between public and private. In his sculptures, installations and photographs, Slotawa frequently uses everyday objects which he orders, rearranges and places in context with one another. His body of work is not only characterized by its strong composition and formal power, but also questions the boundaries between public and private, and the significance of personal property. The artist lives and works in Italy.
