Description - Wolfgang Laib in Florence: Without Time, Without Space, Without Body… by Sergio Risalti

In 2019, Wolfgang Laib entered into a dialogue with masterpieces by Fra Angelico, Leon Battista Alberti, Filippo Brunelleschi and Benozzo Gozzoli in his philosophical and poetic installations of pollen and beeswax. The publication documents impressively this unique and spectacular art event.

Following an invitation from the Museo Novecento in Florence, Wolfgang Laib - one of the outstanding artists of the present day - created five works in four of the city's main sights, including the convent of San Marco and the Pazzi Chapel. In their juxtaposition with the historic masterpieces, the delicate pollen sculptures and the imposing beeswax ziggurat cause the contrast between present and past, physical place and endless space, and real and spiritual life to become blurred and lead us towards the central questions of life.
