Two statues face each other in the courtyard. Both sit on the legs of a saint, meditating in the lotus position. One balances a tower of rocks, the other holds a broken wheel. These icons of spirituality have been shuffled like a deck of cards, coming up with new, perplexing arrangements. Both Tolerance and Intolerance imply confronting someone or something unlike yourself or that you do not necessarily agree with or accept. LN Tallur’s sculptures imply that this confrontation may be internal and doesn’t necessarily involve someone or something else.
