9780892071104: Rebecca Horn

Description: Moon Mirror focuses on a singular aspect of Rebecca Horn's extraordinarily diverse oeuvre, one that plays an important role in the formal constitution of her large sculptures and installations: the relationship between the work of art and its architectural setting. Presented here is a range of pieces, from early works of the 1970s to sculptures and installations realized in 2003. In Mekasten and R ume berhren sich in Spiegeln, both made in the 70s, the human body is the measure of spatial perception. In the late-80s installation Das gegenl ufige Konzert, Horn worked site-specifically within a building of dubious political background--the Zwinger, where countless people were tortured during the Nazi regime--exploring its history and creating a place of remembrance. In the recent Moon Mirror, a work installed in Pollen a, Majorca, the artist created a column of air between a fountain constructed of mirrors and an eddy of light beneath the dome of the Stiftskirche. At the point at which the Orient and the Occident meet, the moon is captured as a "vehicle of human vision and expression." The viewer descends into the depths of the fountain and transcends her own horizon in order to survey the heavens anew.

From Library Journal:

This is essentially a catalog of the exhibition of Horn's work held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City's Soho last summer. There are two interviews with Horn, a German artist whose work has been rightly described as simultaneously disturbing and fascinating. Four well-written essays treat various aspects of her work, examining meaning and content as well as installations. Topics like "The Divine Comedy of Rebecca Horn," "Hybrid Machines," "A Different World," and her interiors are discussed in some detail. Sections on performances and films, a filmography, and a biography complete the text; an index would have been helpful. The illustrations provide a sense of Horn's work, although there is a lack of clarity in many, and, on the whole, the quality of the reproductions is not as good as one might have expected. Still, this is an excellent synopsis of Horn's work and career. Recommended for larger art collections.

From Publishers Weekly:

A performance artist, filmmaker, sculptor and poet, Horn explores the themes of human vulnerability and emotional fragility in her disquieting, often beguiling happenings, movies, anthropomorphized machines and fetishistic objects. Wearing fan-like wings, masks, long pull-on fingers or torso-enveloping feathers, her performers probe the possibilities of human flesh and the imagination. One site-specific installation, Concert in Reverse --set in a medieval German tower that was used by the Nazis to torture and execute Russian and Polish prisoners--sought to counteract the erasure of history. Horn's film, La Ferdinanda , set in a Medici villa owned by nouveau-riche industrialists, is a study of counterfeit existences. In this catalogue of an exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan, Celant, a Guggenheim curator, and a team of scholars unravel the multiple meanings and mythic symbols in this German artist's restlessly experimental work.
