Merz Barn Atmospheres – homage to Kurt Schwitters
c. Michael St.Mark 2010
Elterwater, Langdale Cumbria.
Intimate views into Schwitters’ Merz Barn interior before major refurbishment commenced to turn it into an international art tourist attraction/museum complete with a replica of the original Merz wall. Some relic items here quite possibly having been handled or used by Schwitters himself around 1947, the window frame and rusted openers etc, the glass panes and locally quarried slate construction having remained untouched from that period.
