"Drawing has always been supremely important to me," Rebecca Horn said in an interview a few years ago, likely surprising many readers. Rebecca Horn: Drawings, Sculptures, Installations, Films 1964-2006 brings together a wide-ranging collection of the artist's works on paper, many produced in conjunction with her early performances. Along with props, they reveal the intense physical and mental work that went into the aesthetics of those pieces. A selection of diagrammatic representations also illustrates Horn's strategies in placing machines and equipment from films in exhibitions, where they took on a life of their own. The book also includes scores, technical designs and evidently spontaneous drawings, many of which are enriched with collaged objects, printed words and lines of poetry. This first publication devoted to a previously largely overlooked group of works provides an excellent survey of Horn's graphic art.

She lives in Paris.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.
