Rebecca Horn
Screening & Artist Talk

October 31, 2013

Pera Film in collaboration with Goethe Institute is showcasing two films of well-known artist Rebecca Horn. Following the first screening Rebecca Horn will talk about her career and work.

Rebecca Horn explores Horn’s most frequently recurring themes – sexuality, human vulnerability and emotional fragility – and illustrates the richness and complexity of her work. Her early works focus on her body and senses, frequently incorporating performances and elaborate costumes. 'The Feathered Prison Fan'1978, featured in her film 'Der Eintanzer', dates from this period. Made up of an exotic circle of ostrich feathers, it creates a warm, seductive environment in which to nestle only to snatch away these reassuring sensations as the fan snaps shut. The association between sculpture and film, which continues to be a key element of her work, is fully explored throughout her works.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards.
