Rebecca Horn is an artist who can move an audience through laughter to deep reflection using the most unlikely of objects.
Forty kilometres of developed Hollywood film, a metronome and Buster Keaton’s shoes are the materials from which German contemporary artist Rebecca Horn constructed her installation Time Goes By, the artwork that forms the centrepiece to a survey exhibition of the same name opening at RMIT Gallery on 6 July 2006.
Rebecca Horn is widely regarded as a particularly versatile and creative artist. She works across a broad variety of media – drawing, sculpture, installation, kinetics, photography and film – to create artworks that explore the relationship between the body, movement and space.
Time Goes By presents a selection of her work from the 1970s to the present, with particular emphasis on the links between her sculptures and her films. A program of Horn’s films will be screened throughout the exhibition period.
Free guided tours and special screenings of Horn's films can be arranged throughout the exhibition period.
The gallery is located diagonally opposite Melbourne Central Railway Station and can be reached by trams traveling on Swanston and La Trobe Streets, including the City Circle Tram.
Limited street parking is available.
