HATJE CANTZ

Rebecca Horn: Light Imprisoned In The Belly Of The Whale

Poetry By Jacques Roubaud. Music by Hayden Danyl Chisholm.

In 1997 French poet and mathematician Jacques Roubaud wrote 53 poems for Rebecca Horn. Inspired by this poetry, the German artist created sculptures of light in which words wander through dark spaces, weave through murkiness and form an intertwined network, a firmament of text. In a bath of black water, the poems reflect each other, dissolving within the waves, allowing new signs to arise. A song sung in dialogue with a whale, composed and performed by New Zealand-born jazz musician Hayden Danyl Chisholm, accompanies these visual transformations. This elegant volume contains the work of all three exceptional artists, with Roubaud's lyrical texts written in their complete format; Horn's piece represented in installation photographs; and Chisholm's composed, congenial sequences recorded on audio CD.
