Whitney Museum of American Art: Roni Horn aka Roni Horn

In art|BOOK on December 11, 2009 at 4:34 pm

Born in 1955, Roni Horn has been producing distinctive art for more than 30 years, exploring a range of issues such as gender, identity and the relationship between objects and their audience.

The exhibition consists of around 70 works ranging from small drawings to photographic installations to heavy sculptures.  Horn’s delicate drawings seem to relate to her time traveling and practicing in Ireland, representing the landscape.  Her focus on the doubling of self portrait photos appears to also reflect a similar landscape theme

Roni Horn aka Roni Horn is an exhibition established by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Tate Modern and is the most thorough collection of Horn’s work so far.

Roni Horn aka Roni Horn is running until Jan. 24, 2010 and will then be shown at The Institute of Contemporary, Boston from Feb. 19 to Jun. 13, 2010
