New Work - Installation

Wolfgang Laib - City of Silence

Tue-Sat: 10-6pm

The first solo exhibition in the UK in over two decades of internationally acclaimed artist Wolfgang Laib will present a new group of installations reprising recurring motifs from the German artist’s poetic and highly symbolic oeuvre.

Beeswax sculptures in the shape of houses, towers and ziggurats reminiscent of Mesopotamian religious step pyramids and Christian reliquary shrines will occupy the floors of the gallery, while brass boats will run along the walls, connecting the space and guiding visitors through the exhibition he has named City of Silence.

Alongside them, a series of works on paper created in response to the sculptures will provide a more intimate insight into the artist’s meditative and conceptual approach.
