Wolfgang Laib: Pollen From Hazelnut at the MoMA


The New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is to be covered with bright yellow natural pollen in a new installation by contemporary German artist Wolfgang Laib. 

Titled Pollen From Hazelnut, the site-specific work will completely cover the museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron atrium and will be Laib’s largest pollen project to date, spanning approximately 18 x 21 ft. Laib often uses materials accumulated from natural elements in his installations, which have been selected for their purity and symbolic associations, such as milk, marble, pollen, rice, and beeswax.

For more on the use of colour with intrinsic spiritual associations, see our report Sacred Colour: Precious & Emphatic Hues and the Stylus Spectrum Spring/Summer 2014 concept Sacred Space.

The exhibition will run from 23 January to 11 March 2013.
