Wolfgang Laib: Pollen from Hazelnut, 1992, 137-3/4 x 157-1/2 inches (350 x 400 cm), installation view at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France. Photo courtesy of Sperone Westwater, New York, NY.


parthenogenesis of the medium – artistic intent –
engendered from within and of itself –

Insouciant, unknowing, how
could it?
Pollen, inherent purity of light,
gleaned by Laib from southern fields in May

Another wolf, lubricious,
yet, feathers of ferverfew reduced
the attack to doggerel
and colchicine as recorded on
the calque, papyrus,
turned acid

Artist Statement or rationale or why do I do what I do



I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
