Hurting Horses

Robert Morris - Hurting Horses
In Hurting Horses, the artist uses a distinct literary style from one chapter to another, from autobiography to historical essay, from satirical parody to the fantastic, from letter to fiction, from detailed report to visionary daydream. These masterly pieces of literature are haunted by the great American foundation myths and establish a series of crucial links from myth to history, from history to art, from art to nature.
The work of American artist Robert Morris (1931-2018) seems to find more and more relevance each year. Often associated with Minimalist productions—such as those of Carl Andre, Donald Judd, and Dan Flavin—Morris' work was in reality "multimedia" from the outset and never determined by any style or form.
