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.
