Wolfgang Laib 2/2 – About Time


Wolfgang Laib évoque l’étendue de sa vision de l’art qui pour lui n’est pas simplement une question de couleurs ou de peinture. Inspiré par des artistes comme Brancusi ou Jakob Brackle et par la philosophie asiatique, son art aborde l’équilibre entre le temporel et l’intemporel, entre le fragile et l’éternel. Pour Laib rien ne remplace l’expérience de la vie qu’il faut embrasser corps et âme. C’est ce qu’il conseille aux jeunes artistes qui pour lui ne doivent pas s’enfermer en école d’art.

For Laib nothing replaces the experience of life that must be embraced body and soul. This is what he advises to young artists who for him should not be caught up in art schools.
