The extraordinary and eclectic world of Simon Wald-Lasowski (born in Paris, 1980; lives and works in Amsterdam) comprises objects and selected members of the Animalia kingdom. He creates installations, videos and sculptures, all inspired by his palette d’objets, a colourful collection of everyday objects. The objects are quirky, shiny, animalistic or colourful, and, strangely enough, often both hideous and appealing.
