The multi-part sculptures and installations by Sabine Hornig are always about reproducing the space. For instance, she puts windows into gallery spaces, creating a view where none existed before. She adds walls made of glass or papier-mâché "bricks" in order to create more rooms, or builds reproductions of façade sections or entryways. Framing, transparency, inaccessibility, memory, and fiction are terms that are key to understanding Hornig's work. This volume is the first monograph on the Berlin artist's work. Besides multi-dimensional works from 1993 to the present, it also contains photographs, as well as a text by Delfim Sardo and an interview with the artist conducted by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz and Christian Rattemeyer. The publication was made possible by support from the Senatsverwaltung für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur - Künstlerinnenförderung, Berlin.
