to unmoor meaning from its resting place
Does "to unmoor meaning from its resting place" mean "to uncover and awaken the meaning from its hidden and sleeping situation"?
The artwork as dream-work can be considered as a poetic writing or mapping. Within such ‘writing’ there can be metaphoric allusions which threaten to make the image’s meaning transparent. However, this legibility is constantly being undermined by the mechanics of the dreamwork, the wheels and cogs of whose spokes interlock and come apart again to unmoor meaning from its resting place, generating a metonymic displacement of signifiers in a potentially limitless chain of signification,which in psychoanalytic terminology is referred to as over-determination.
