The work of the concept and performance artist Amy J. Klement (born in NJ, USA, in 1968, in Berlin, Germany, since 1997) is inspired by myths, mathematics, external shells, and handwork, and executed to a great extent with a sense of irony and humor. Performing patience, particularly in open space, is also a central concept, especially in connection with her crocheted creations.
She has presented solo performances and collaborative performances with the Open Space Performunion at festivals and events in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Asia since 2000. She is also the founder of the “Kraft durch Häkeln” (Strength thru Crochet) Anarchic Crochet Circle, an initiator of large-format, cooperative, crochet-based social sculptures in open space.
