Sabine Hornig

Photography portrait of artist Sabine Hornig
The sculptures, photographs and installations of Sabine Hornig re-envision architectural spaces and ubiquitous urban forms to explore the concepts of space, perspective and memory. At once rigorously formal and poetic, her work recontextualizes familiar places and structures such as­ storefront windows, urban facades, and school houses through overlapping perspectives and inversions of scale and dimension. Throughout the past two decades, Hornig has presented numerous solo exhibitions of her work as well as large architectural interventions in public spaces worldwide, including a site-specific installation commissioned by LaGuardia Gateway Partners in partnership with Public Art Fund (2020).

The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poetry reading, and we’re fortunate to have Erika Hodges reading.

Erika Hodges is a gender expansive poet and performance artist living and breathing somewhere between Brooklyn and Boulder. They received their MFA from Pratt Institute where they were the Leslie Scalapino Scholar. Their work can be found at Flag + Void, CALYX, The Poetry Foundation’s Open Door Series, & The Poetry Project among others. They also hosted and curated an interview series for Wendy’s Subway entitled, What Happens After The End. They are a 2022 Can Serrat residency fellow. They are a co-founder of Philopatry Collective that will be releasing their debut collection of chapbooks this coming fall. This fall, they will be pursuing their JD at Tulane University, where they hope to deepen the accompanying praxis to their poetics that might move us toward liberation.
