Rebecca Horn, born 1944 in Michelstadt (Germany), lives and works in Berlin and Paris. She constructs ensembles of discrete, often kinetic parts to create evocative, almost theatrical, installations. The central and connecting theme of her works - in sculpture, installations, drawings and prints - is the transmission and free flow of energy which the artist directs into poetic ensembles, often suggesting a surreal expression.
