Until August 27, 2022, Galerie Thomas Schulte shows installational works by Fred Sandback and The Peacock Machine by Rebecca Horn. Two outstandingly simple/simply outstanding exhibitions, two outstandingly complex artists.
I stretch the loom, like when I was a little girl. Choosing the colour, creating a pattern.
I draw the lines, following the angles; aka geometry lesson.
I measure the distance, weight the balance.
Tension. Childhood, precision, and play.
I stretch the bow. And prepare the battle for a simple understanding of beauty.
A peacock, a sun, a Venus shell, a halo, a crown. A machine. Objects as poetry, performance as mindful rebellion, the body as weapon and battlefield.
Aka: Rebecca Horn.
