Arpad Slancik

Body horror meets the industrial arts in the work of Serbia-based artist Arpad Slancik. Reminiscent of “Hellraiser,” Slancik’s tall, lanky creatures are wired up and split open with painful-looking contraptions; their large-mouthed screams and ghoulishly long limbs exaggerate their expressions of pain. The image of steel pushing into the sculptures’ “skin” produces a visceral anxiety over the body’s lack of resistance against the brutality of machines. By installing his sculptures in derelict buildings and against grimy cement walls, the artist adds to the viewer’s discomfort and alienation.
