Free Ezra Pound

CR 706. Year 1990

Free Ezra Pound Jochen Gerz Cr 706 Web

    In Gerz' work a questioning of art emerges from an abyss of linguistic elements, which open up a space "like between the lines of Mallarmé".

    Marion Hohlfeldt 2002

    Another aspect of these works is that they make us sensitive to "change" (both within the artwork in question, and beyond or outside it). These works often also "refer to" or "call to mind" or "evoke in us" history. But, being activated, we do not see in them works that force a vision of history on us. They create a free space: not only for the imagination but also for OUR conscience, our emotions, thoughts, memories. They leave us free to think, to feel, to choose a position vis á vis the past and the present.
