10 December - Emma Lenzi, wood sculpture

On the 10th of December we will visit Emma Lenzis garden and her tall wooden sculpture with an indicated door. According to Lenzi, the door symbolizes the secret of all things that "not yet" are, or are "expected". A beautiful metaphor which becomes present especially during Christmas time when waiting and patience are particularly difficult.

Emma Lenzi wrote a poem especially for her sculpture:

wo immer
wir wohnen
türen
zu öffnen
um
über schwellen zu treten

sie künden
hier
ist kein bleiben
lockend und ängstigend
geheimnisvolles
dahinter

wherever
we live
doors
to open
in order
to cross thresholds

they announce
here
is no staying
tempting and frightening
mysterious
behind
