Hain [Grove]

Franz West


Object, 295 x 130 x 95 cm.
Materials: metal, perspex, TL-lamp

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7604_M378).

Franz West made Hain especially for the M HKA. The work comprises three meters-high lamps that spread a vivid green light throughout the exhibition room. It was West’s response to the question of how to have museum visitors forget what a mediocre world we’re living in. The title Hain is a playful wink to fellow-artists Haim Steinbach and Heimo Zobernig, as well as being the German word for ‘grove’.
