ERIK STEINBRECHER
Dear Slug

2009. Cast aluminium

Like slugs with a date for a slimy kiss, two oversize baguettes creep along the trunk of a pine tree. The flexible crust of the bread in roughly cast aluminium connects to the roughness of the bark of the tree to create a subtly loaded visual puzzle about materials, nature and surreal humour. The artist and architect, who was born in Basle, teaches at the Art Academy in Zurich and lives mainly in Berlin.
