ANSUYA BLOM, Absolute Anonyme 2, 2018, 2 parts
In the work of Ansuya Blom, feet, hands and limbs play a prominent role in her drawings and sculptures, as representatives of essential elements of the human condition with all its advantages and disadvantages.
The title of this work comes from a letter from Ezra Pound, a politically controversial American poet. Somewhere in that letter he describes himself as 'absolute anonyme', words that hit Ansuya Blom as an endearing moment of a creative spirit in despair.
The work has been installed here in a windowsill of The Mesdag Collection in The Hague as part of the exhibition 'The Zindering van de Zee'.
