Rebecca Horn
Between the Knives the Emptiness

Past: October 16 → November 22, 2014

For her second solo show at Galerie Lelong, Rebecca Horn is exhibiting a selection of mobile sculptures and large paintings on paper. Her sculptures continue the tradition of the animate object, a legacy of Dada, surrealism and kinetic art, drawing on many literary, alchemical or sexual references.

Rebecca Horn was born in 1944; she lives in Germany, near Frankfurt where she has set up the Moontower Foundation in the village of her birth.

Her work is exhibited in the world’s leading museums including the Guggenheim and the MoMA, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Tate Gallery, London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. She has been invited on a number of occasions to the Documenta and the Venice Biennial. In 2010, she was awarded the Praemium Imperiale in the sculpture category.
