Laurent Grasso has been selected for the group exhibition “Là où commence le jour – Dans le cadre de lille3000 – Renaissance” at the Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne d’art contemporain et d’art brut (LaM), France. Curated by Marc Donnadieu, the expansive yet meticulous selection involving around 120 works by 40 international artists, evokes a journey that imitates the grand histoire of man’s existential search for meaning. Taking its roots from the Renaissance, the exhibition examines closely our engagement with forms that are at once emblematic and hierophanic. In philosophising the cycle of life and death, a theme that is echoed by the exhibition’s title, the show boldly considers the ultimacy of our fate.
