Time Goes By: Rebecca Horn
7 Jul 2006 -
13 Aug 2006
Rebecca Horn is an artist who can move an audience through laughter to deep reflection using the most unlikely of objects.
Forty kilometres of developed Hollywood film, a metronome and Buster Keaton’s shoes are the materials from which German contemporary artist Rebecca Horn constructed her installation Time Goes By, the artwork that forms the centrepiece to a survey exhibition of the same name opening at RMIT Gallery on 6 July 2006.
Rebecca Horn is widely regarded as a particularly versatile and creative artist. She works across a broad variety of media – drawing, sculpture, installation, kinetics, photography and film – to create artworks that explore the relationship between the body, movement and space.
Time Goes By presents a selection of her work from the 1970s to the present, with particular emphasis on the links between her sculptures and her films. A program of Horn’s films will be screened throughout the exhibition period.
Free guided tours and special screenings of Horn’s films can be arranged throughout the exhibition period.
