The exhibition Maribor Project / Rebecca Horn & Guests is designed as an intercultural project that includes not only the works of renowned German artist Rebecca Horn but intertwines them with selected works of further fine art artists, thus establishing more and less direct references and entanglements between different generations, cultural contexts and artistic expression. Employing different material and techniques, all five artists have developed a strong individual artistic language in order to reflect their subjective perception of their environments as well as their interest in societal, political and historical matters. Carefully selected and positioned by the artist herself, the exhibition thus visualizes and emphasizes the multifaceted and interconnected layers of material and aesthetic references between more than 50 works. What the body of works have in common and what speaks to Rebecca Horn`s oeuvre is their sensibility towards material, time, space and human perception. All artworks succeed in the creation of an aesthetic surface that is lightheartedly deep in meaning and intense in perception.
