Glucksman Gallery

Lunchtime talk with Sanne Horn

Our series of free lunchtime talks invites Sanne Horne, Dutch landscape designer and an artist-in-residence with the Albers Foundation Carraig-na-gcat programme in West Cork.

Sanne Horn originally trained as a visual artist at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She soon realized that the the richness and beauty of nature, and our relation with it, was important to her. After following a garden landscaping education, she started working with the Dutch landscape architects Copijn, where she stayed for over ten years. Since 2015 she has been working as an independent landscape designer which has allowed her to partially come back to visual art again, and focus on projects that involve both visual art and nature. Some of her recent projects include neighborhood initiatives in Amsterdam, La Saison des Fêtes by Pierre Huyghe in the sculpture garden of Museum Kröller Müller, and the primary school project "Your Own Paradise", that encourages the pupils to look, feel and listen to the beautiful shapes, colors, smells and stories that can be found in a garden. For the past 5 years, she has been the main designer of the gardens of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, where each season she works closely with the museum on creating a meaningful seasonally garden design, often connected to the art work on display in the museum. She also lectures at various landscape design institutions, and teaches plantdesign at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
