[Translate to English:] Für Ruth 4
At the same time the presentation at the Albertinum is an experimental format in which David Horvitz (*1982 in Los Angeles, USA) enters into a dialog with Wolf-Rehfeldt’s work. The young contemporary artist developed an exchange with the documenta 14 artist based on the principle of a living archive. Like Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, he deals with processes of circulation and interconnectedness, exploring how thoughts and feelings become sign and actions. Whether with Mail Art, artist books, infiltrations on the internet, apps or documented travels and collected artifacts – the questioning of the rules of time and space, knowledge and ownership mark his artistic approach.
In the exhibition at the Albertinum, Horvitz will show existing works on paper and glass sculptures alongside a new video work and invites visitors to try Mail Art for themselves through a participatory artwork. A performance and a work in the urban space of Dresden complete the show.
Both positions are divided by generations and worlds – their wit, their conception of art and its inherent poetry is nonetheless very similar. The personal admiration and bond that David Horvitz has with Wolf-Rehfeldt has inspired the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in Dresden, which is anchored in the now through their dialogical exchange.
