By considering the breakdown of the utopian imaginary in this manner Stanislav’s work precisely locates and interrogates the limits of human rationality. With this in mind the work of Andréa Stanislav revels, almost in a mood of resistance, in that most traditional of artistic dimensions: beauty. Limited as we are, fragile as bodies may be, her careful practice adorns the mundane with decoration, positioning it in works of considerable scale, letting them spin and glitter, millions of pristine points, fragments of faces and hopeful eyes.
Andréa Stanislav was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1968. She lives and works in Minneapolis and New York City. Andréa received a MFA from Alfred University in 1997 and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1990. She is a contemporary artist whose interdisciplinary practice includes: sculpture, video, installation and public projects and interventions. Her work interrogates global capital and popular culture via the unexpected -- with her multimedia installations and monumental sculpture.
