biography

Roni Horn was born in 1955 New York. She lives and works in New York.

Horn's oeuvre, which spans almost four decades, explores the mutable nature of art through sculptures, works on paper, photography, and books. Horn’s drawings concentrate on the materiality of the objects depicted. She also uses words as the basis for drawings and other works. Horn crafts complex relationships between the viewer and her work by installing a single piece on opposing walls, in adjoining rooms, or throughout a series of buildings. She subverts the notion of ‘identical experience’, insisting that one’s sense of self is marked by a place in the here-and-there, and by time in the now-and-then. Horn’s work also embodies the cyclical relationship between humankind and nature—a mirror-like relationship in which we attempt to remake nature in our own image. For the past 30 years, the work of Roni Horn has been intimately involved with the singular geography, geology, climate and culture of Iceland.
