‘Dreamy Nomads, Baby’ investigates the malleability of memory against subjectivity. Slominski focuses upon benchmarks within a collective backdrop that hold consistent in varying memories, thereby emphasizing, via comparison, our memory distortions upon the past experience. Slominski is intrigued by our inability to accurately share a memory. She draws upon this singular navigation through the past via an exchange of text messages. This call and response, while endearing and familiar, falls out of sync with one another. The lack of comprehension opens a space of dislocation and longing.
The installation for Dimensions Variable incorporates light boxes, sculpture, and a wall installation of flocked screen-prints on paper. By examining the elements of our everyday landscape, Slominski aims to create an environment which is simultaneously familiar and unfamiliar.
Intrigued by pop culture and patterns found in design, Slominski’s multi-media practice is playful but also also rhythmic through it use of repetition. Her motivations are suggestive of interior design techniques for domestic, commercial and religious spaces: she evokes recognition of the viewer’s experiences, her mitigations then disrupt the presumption.
