Rebecca Horn – Light imprisoned in the belly of the whale
Lumière en prison dans le ventre de la baleine
In 1997 Jaques Roubaud wrote 53 poems for Rebecca Horn. To let the letters appear for new drawings, Rebecca Horn developed light sculptures that form a twisted, intertwining net, like a textfirmament.
Reflected trough a black pond, new letters appear. While this happens the viewer himself becomes part ot the work of art, standing where new letters appear through light. Meanwhile a dialogue-chant, composed and interpreted by Hayden Danyl Chisholm, accompanies this process.
