a possible horizon

A new landscape, a possible horizon, a place of rest and absolute beauty. […] This was an undiscovered ocean for us. It was impossible, yet it was real, we saw this landscape. Like no other landscape. We felt it. We traveled together to countless sunsets. But where did this object come from? Who produced this piece that risked itself by being so fragile, just laying on the floor, no base, no plexiglass box on top of it…. A place to dream, to regain energy, to dare.

- Felix Gonzalez-Torres on Roni Horn’s The Gold Field (1980-82)
