Sample text

Calle was thrown out of her past. From the possibilities that the world threw up to her, Calle seized possibility in its possibility and through this ‘projected’ into the future. Heidegger uses the term ‘projection’ (‘Entwurf’) to describe the way Dasein acts in the world to fulfil its own possibilities as a Being. In using the break-up as the impetus for a major art project, Calle drew on her past experience, dispositions and skills and set up possibilities for what would become. Calle’s past (her thrownness), her present (her dealing with the email) and future (how her actions affect what will happen in the future) demonstrate 22 Heidegger Reframed Heidegger’s three-dimensional understanding of time.

I am always struck by the formality of the openings you cut into your stone pieces. Doorways, elongated windows, thresholds, finely finished portals, lintels with razor-like edges, that contrast with the raw halo of encrustations and crenellation, the chemical activity of the ages, around them. The torqued, ambivalent movement of the stone is unmistakable: svyambhuv: rupa, and then 34 Heidegger Reframed in a flash; rupa: svyambhuv – self-made/man-made and then, in an iterative instant, back again man-made/self-made.

What was a personal tragedy has become an international art event that has made Calle even more of an international art celebrity. But her thrownness is not over now, nor will it be in the future. Calle, like you or me, is always in a state of being thrown, and being thrown continues to shape our existence. However, we are getting beyond ourselves here. In its being-towards-possibilities, Dasein understands itself in its possibilities for being. Being Dasein, Calle wanted to find a way of understanding what had happened, what she should do and how she should move.
