Dianne Hagen (1964)

Woont in Amsterdam. Werkt in Amsterdam.

Dianne Hagen’s works have no titles. They are rightly named after the materials or parts they are composed of, because these works are not sculptures nor objects manufactured from raw material or made with a purpose or a function that would give them unity or clarity. They do not get round to the unity of a name and the clarity of language. Since they have no name, they can not fit in a whole either: the works do not look for contact with their “environment” or the world, nor with each other. The works cannot be “installed”. One can only look for a place where they can be alone in order to exist in their own space. Neither are Hagen’s works constructions or structures. One can not “formalize” the logic with which they were made. The work is not organized or supported by geometrical forms or by numbers, there is no structure which is filled and which gives the parts a necessary place and stability. No abstraction, symmetry, opposition, equilibrium.... Hagen’s works are compositions which, since they give no evidence of an underlying geometry and do not visualize a concept, appear to be amorphous and fragile and not justified. (From ‘Groene Pasen’ by Bart Verschaffel).
