Laurent Grasso has been selected to participate in the exhibition ‘Curiosity: Art & The Pleasures of Knowing’, a group show at De Appel, Amsterdam. A Hayward Touring exhibition curated by novelist Brian Dillon in association with Cabinet Magazine, the exhibition zooms in on ‘curiosity’ and considers how it is the motor that spurs us on to acquire knowledge as well as build a guilty desire for the pleasures of new and strange things. Taking as a starting point the cabinets of curiosity that flourished throughout Europe in the 17th century, ‘Curiosity’ ties into Laurent Grasso’s practice of creating work that channels a sense of wonder, fascination and inquiry, and explores the notions of ambiguous history and urge to know.
