White Schwitters by derkert White Schwitters by derkert
Digital collage by edvard derkert 2009

After the two trashy "cut up" pictures I am back on the art track again. Is this the beginning of my white period?

Did you know that that Schwitters share the the edvard name with me. Of course not! He was baptised Kurt Hermann Eduard Karl Julius Schwitters.

Almost as longs as Pippi Longstockinga name: Pippilotta Viktualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump.

In english: Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Schwitters was name Eduard after his father. I was also named after my father. But my full name is so very short:
Jean Edvard Derkert!

But you can call me Ed!

By the way the whole you see on the right is from Berlin academy of art. Just for your information!

The piece is built around/upon a window covered with wooden planks i found in the German town Wismar which belonged to Sweden until 1903. Very strange.

Anything more you want to know?

Very nice idea derkert! I like how you combined Schwitters thought on yours. The white room he made of angular papers and cartons was destroyed unfortunately during the war. Sometimes white isnt always light, it may has an eery feeling in moments in time..

Thank you. they have a replica of the Merzbau in Hannover. I visited the museum. I was disappointed, didnt say me very much. White is alost never really white. Thats just a fancy idea!

He is oeuvre is a bit uneven – he tries everything – but when he's good he really is. My favourite us a small one in the Moderna Musset in Stockholm. They have taken it down just showing a big realy one which I dont like much!


Thanks!
