The exhibition Die Hand voller Stunden, so kamst du zu mir (Your Hand Full of Hours, You Came to Me) at Camera Austria, Graz, is an intimate reflection on the current moment of physical distancing and uncertainty. Taking its title from Paul Celan’s collection of poetry Mohn und Gedächtnis (Poppy and Memory, 1952), the show mixes the visual and the poetic, fragmenting images whilst encompassing different techniques, materials, formats, and registers. Examining the physicality of hands as a symbol of proximity, affection, and care, as well as a nonverbal tool of expression, Horn recounts a personal event as a starting point for a photographic and sculptural dérive, whilst creating a form that is consistently open to the process of becoming.
On occasion of the exhibition an eponymous publication will be published in the Edition Camera Austria with texts by Attilia Fattori Franchini and Wendy Vogel. The publication will be out on the 12th of August.
