WOLFGANG LAIB | Crossing the river | SOLO SHOW

WOLFGANG LAIB | Crossing the river | SOLO SHOW

Ever since his journeys to India as a young man the idea inspired him to see humans as part of a largerwhole. He also follows this way of life in his art. Thereby the artist tracks down the universal, the eternal and works with natural materials such as pollen, rice, milk or bees wax. However, he also finds this holistic understanding in our culture. In the juxtaposition between a small mound of colour-intensive pollen and a eucharist casket Wolfgang Laib creates an astonishing relationship. The presentation is in a laid-out field of thousands of rice mounds. As an important foodstuff rice symbolises vitality and is fundamental for our earthly existence. With the temporary installation the artist manifests the spiritual dimension of art and leads us directly to the source of his poetics.
