Description

Using humour as a visual tool, Sammy Slabbinck choreographs compositions that meditate on the absurdity of popular consumerist culture, both past and present. His dynamic contemporary collages are reminiscent of the great surrealist Jacques Prevert. Often witty but at the same time foreboding and dark, Slabbinck's deft hand creates a unique signature that makes each collage unequivocally his own. Belgian surrealism has another heir. With cut-outs from vintage issues of Playboy and Paris Match, Sammy Slabbinck composes his absurd universes with poetical harmony. Mangled, contestable, reversible. His retro-futuro collages hang in galleries in London; they are used as album covers and digital prints, and have featured in The New Yorker.
