DANIEL HOROWITZ / Pensée Sauvage
Galerie RX, Paris
January 26 - February 21, 2019
curated by Bénédicte Alliot,
Director of the Cité internationale des Arts
Drawing inspiration from Théodore de Bry’s (1528-1598) prints of « Savages » in his Great and Small Voyages, in this new body of work Daniel Horowitz explores the tenuous relationship of the self and other. Created at the Cité internationale des arts, these artworks serve as a re-probing of the « savage mind » that is within all of us and so dear to Claude Lévi-Strauss. The “canvas collages” are meticulously "customized“ with the help of a sewing machine, summoning a collective memory and forming a metaphysical topography of the human soul, something that Daniel Horowitz continues to investigate in his work.
