#ART: WOLFGANG LAIB FILLS MOMA’S ATRIUM WITH NATURAL POLLEN

Well this is certainly interesting! A new installation by contemporary German artist Wolfgang Laib will see the Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron atrium at New York’s MoMA completely covered with bright yellow natural pollen. Entitled “Pollen from Hazelnut”, the site-specific exhibition is tailored specifically for the space and is the artist’s largest pollen work to date at 18 x 21 ft. 

The hazelnut pollen that will be used in MoMA’s installation has been collected by Laib from the natural environment around his home and studio, in a small village in southern Germany, since the mid-1990s.

The exhibition will be running from 23 January through to 11 March, 2013.
