Laurent Grasso has been selected for the group exhibition ‘Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder’ at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCa). The exhibition brings together 23 international artists to manifest the many facets of wonder bordering the perceptual and the illusory, as well as the scientific and the philosophical. Taking inspiration from Ray Bradbury, the show seeks to present “wonder” in its purest state, poised between our knowing and not knowing. On display are Laurent Grasso’s ‘Studies into the Past’ and ’79, Eruption in Pompeï, Head of the God Harpocrate combed by the crown, Ptolemaic period, Egypt’ (2014).
