Goodbye Glowing Sperm - Karol Slowik

A sad day for the city, Berlin says goodbye to Karol Slowik. Confused by the smell of new leather we find Polish sculptor Karol Slowik behind the steering wheel of a rental car, singing his favorite tune with an intensity only to be understood by those who are waving goodbye as we speak. Karol is accompanied by Polish photographer Ewa Kniaziak, the very same Ewa Kniaziak that left a comment below; one of many differences between both fellows being that she's coming back in a few days, while Karol is returning to his hometown Milanowek for good.

We were close to firing our oh so retarded intern Ronny when we found out that he forgot to ask Karol for some images of his literally enlightning work. We had to show mercy with the baboon mainly because his father-in-law (well-known patron of the arts Kasper da Punchinello) is one of our major stakeholders as well as the head of our board of managment. However, we curse him for forcing us to steal footage from Karol's website and his facebook profile. For those of you who haven't heard about facebook yet, it is a marvelous social network, please check here and convince yourself of the improvement of living conditions this network has to offer.

As you can see Karol works with photoluminescent materials, lion-heartedly exposing his hands and lungs to what might be highly poisonous. His advanced techniques and crafty tricks have to remain his secret, but we do think that everyone should have one of this oversized figurines swinging like a newly-laid alien maverick above their sleeping skulls. You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth, tells us Exodus, but nature refuses to cooperate. Thus we see in Karol's work an answer to prayers that have yet to be spoken and addressed to the spirits and genies that farm and fructify our souls.
