In the frame of the Visegrad Artists Residency – Visual and Sound Arts program Viliam Slaminka spends three months at the Studio of Young Artists’ Association. Viliam Slaminka (1985) is an artist with a diploma from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. In addition to his artistic work, he also devotes himself to comics, illustrations and education. His works are based on popular culture with an interest in current social issues. He emphasizes simplicity, stylization and colour. Game is always embedded in his work and with it, he invites the audience to join various participative projects. Significant aspects of his work are humour and playfulness.In his project called Gym, he searches for the “weight” of things that surrounds us. His intention is to create an interactive gym with playful exercise equipment mostly made out of everyday objects. His solo exhibition ‘Gym’ presents the result of this research and at the same time, invites the visitors to a common experiment. More about his works: http://viliamslaminka.blogspot.com/
