Amanda's Inspiration

Rebecca Horn
The Moon, the Child and the River of Anarchy, 1992
school desks, metal, ink, glass funnels

I've admired the work of Rebecca Horn for so long. She is a German artist known for her performance art, wearable sculptures and installations. I love the idea behind this piece and her unique use of materials. It's awesome how she can relate functionality to sculpture in such a beautiful way.

  1. Rebecca Horn is an artist with an incredibly expansive body of work. What amazed me was reading that one of Alexander McQueen's iconic runway moments was inspired by Rebecca Horn's painting machine installations! (In the McQueen show, a model wearing a white dress is sprayed repeatedly with paint by two robotic arms.)
