Art Daily on an Anand Zenz exhibition.
A translation of Heidegger’s observation, “Questioning is the Piety of Thought.” runs across Grundsatz, a doormat on the gallery floor. (‘Grundsatz’ means ‘principle’ in German. It is from ‘grund’ for ‘ground’ and ‘satz’ for ‘sentence’. It also puns on Heidegger’s name: ‘heide’ can mean ‘heathen’ or ‘heather’; and ‘egger’ is one who harrows the ground - the harrower of heathens.)
