Moving House, Dada, Assemblage, Hanging sculpture, Home, Door, Key, Merz, Collage, Ceiling object, Poetry, Anne Klein H., KleinManzanoArt
Anne’s last work is a one of a kind hanging sculpture in DaDa and Merz tradition.
The theme was ‘Moving House’, ‘Home’ and the importance of settling down. A personal theme, for Anne has moved house about 25 times in her lifetime. The idea condensed in the remains of an old front door (with its door handles, and latch key still in the lock), and pages of poetry, all about home, living, leaving and moving house.
The setup of the work ‘Moving House’ refers directly to the Dada Movement in the early 20th century (Kurt Schwitters and the DaDa movement discovered the hidden poetry in trivial objects or whatever material of little value that had been thrown away, and started to create assemblages and collages with them, which they then called Merz).
The hanging sculpture ‘Moving House’ has also a Surrealistic layer: it has been part of a front door - to close off or open up a home - but it has now been detached from its function. What once was a front door, now hangs in the air, upside down, always open and impossible to close, even when you turn the key.
And you can take it with you wherever you go.
