DESCRIPTION

The work of Laurent Grasso (French/Italian, b. Mulhouse, France, 1972) encompasses projections, drawing, painting, sculpture, and recently the installation of a temporary restaurant on the roof of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Probing the seam between the real and the surreal, Grasso often depicts strange interfaces between the natural realm and the world created by humankind. Polair, 2007, surveys architecture in the area that was formerly East Berlin. The work features the city’s iconic television tower, its tramway equipment, and various structures that transmit electromagnetic waves. The exhibition will also include Les Oiseaux, 2008. Black Box: Laurent Grasso is organized by Hirshhorn associate curator Kelly Gordon. Support for the Black Box program is provided in part by Lawrence A. Cohen/Ringler Associates.
