We’re All in a Flutter About Rebecca Horn

An anxious childhood led to Horn’s interest in alchemy and absurdity. She has since produced extraordinary, unsettling works – performance art, films, machine sculptures. Some reflect on the solitary nature of human experience. Others concern social change, aiming to “drill a little hole in a problem that exists in a place or social situation”. A video of Horn’s machines is here and images here.
