Exhibition in Milan "Ritagli sul Mondo"
21st of September until 1st of Oktober 2011
The exhibition in Milan RITAGLI SUL MONDO curated by Professor Carlo Franza comprises a series of scultpures by Miguel Horn in various materials, from wood to Thiokol, clay and iron (the famous FerrumSkulpturen) as well as scetches and designs on paper. Carlo Franza writes on the sculpures of Miguel Horn: Miguel Horn arrives in Milan with an exhibition that demonstrates his persistent work on sculpture. His sculptures are now intertwined in the European landscape, specifically with the installation of monumental works that inspire an idea of the architecture of the world with all its living and non-living components, that present an example of deep and existential reflections...
