HATJE CANTZ

Rebecca Horn: Moon Mirror

Essays by Doris von Drathen and Stephen Henry Madoff. Preface by Marion Ackermann.

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.
