the object is the sign / agricultural tools

the object is the sign (1989)
agricultural tools

taken out of their sourrounding and reduced to their basic form
the objects are almost gleaming of loftiness which comes close
to their original worthiness.
the alienation is pointing back to the archaic worthiness, which we
cannot see in our daily life, in contrast to the farmer.
he is working with them everyday, he gets hurt by them, he is using them up.
he does not need this expirience through his intellect, he knows it by his daily life.

this work is relating to martin heideggers „der ursprung des kunstwerks".
