Cornucopia-Seance for Two Breasts @ Rebecca Horn. 1970

Publié le par Olivier Lussac

A poetical construction that makes one think of a fabulous nurse machine, of a creative form lending the nourishing function of the female body a meaning that also comprehends the self-referentialism of the adult. From this perspective, the idea of self-nourishment takes on a vital dimension whose other, more constricting side is revealed by the usage of the black tape and the ligature with the head. Mythological figure, poetical construction and purpose – free object – these attibutes of so many of Rebecca Horn’s works can be associated with this object, which bears a close relation to the performances shown in the films « Performances I », 1972, and « Performances II », 1973.
