Background Information about Rebecca Horn


Eros by Rebecca

The body, time and space are the themes that Rebecca Horn (b. 1944) seeks to capture and represent in her art. The German artist, who lives in Bad Königszell, Berlin and New York, became known in the late 1960s with objects and kinetic sculptures. Since the 1970s her work has increasingly embraced installations, performances and films.

The fantasy of the animated doll or automaton, cherished for centuries, is lent new life in her poetically suggestive work. Rebecca Horn created this limited edition in conjunction with the exhibition Eros in Modern Art held at the Fondation Beyeler in 2007. Each photocollage has also been additionally worked in paint by the artist, lending it the character of an original work.
