Rebecca Horn (who turned 69 this week): “Mechanischer Körperfächer” (body fan 2) via Rolu, kleidersachen, foxesinbreeches & calyx. I think this is a 1970’s piece, but can’t find a definitive reference.
Rebecca Horn (24 March 1944, Michelstadt, Hesse) is a German installation artist and film director most famous for her body modifications such as Einhorn (Unicorn), a body-suit with a very large horn projecting vertically from the headpiece, and Pencil Mask, a mesh harness for the head with many pencils projecting out. She directed the films; Der Eintänzer (1978), La ferdinanda: Sonate für eine Medici-Villa (1982) and Buster’s Bedroom (1990). Horn presently lives and works in Paris and Berlin.
Johan Lorbeer is a German artist concerned with phenomena of perception. His performances are caught on the borderline between image and presentation and they perturb us through their apparent incompatibility with our spacial experiences. Via 2headedsnake & sweet-station.com
