“Before the Horizon” is an anachronistic gathering of painted and photographed horizons with an occasional foray into sculpture, installation, and land art. The title and the spirit of the exhibition are a reference to Georges Didi-Huberman’s book “Devant le temps”, a study of anachronism and art history. In the wake of great thinkers such as Walter Benjamin, Carl Einstein and Aby Warburg, his analysis raises the issue of anachronism as one of the taboos of art history as an academic discipline.
