Herringer Kiss Gallery, Calgary, AB - Oct 12-Nov 11

The paradoxical subtitle of this exhibition translates as “The Learned Lesson of Ignorance” and is borrowed from a treatise by philosopher Nikolaus von Kues. Calgary-based artist Reinhard Skoracki uses his beguiling tabletop sculptures to pose – but not answer – a number of questions about the human condition. In his exhibition statement, he tells us the underlying thesis of his new work is that “true knowledge abides in the consciousness of ignorance.”
