Muriel Lässer



Wisdom Stone deals with the desire of knowledge and desire in general. The desire to know as a dilemma and the consequences that follow. Out of struggling between knowledge and wisdom, the artist Muriel Lässer created a space in which the crossroad of the two meet. The edges and the falls of the desire to know remind one, of the painful moment to surrender without knowing. It is not the unknown the artist is interested but the power of finding oneself in the situation of not knowing.

Wisdom Stone is an installation specially made for Galleri Bergman and one without any actual paintings. As the shape of the canvas was a logical extension of the painted shapes earlier in Muriel Lässer's work the physical approach has become more important and so to say the world in the paintings is shown in Wisdom Stone inside out.
