Lot Details

Roni Horn has built a body of work in a variety of media that engages physical space and consistently assigns an active role to the viewer. Through juxtaposed sequences of images of facial expressions and natural phenomena, Horn explores the relationship between the instantaneous results of photography and the play of constancy and metamorphosis in nature and human emotion.

Roni Horn (b. 1955, New York), whose oeuvre spans nearly four decades, is known for her flexibility in working a variety of media, from photographic portraits to drawings to abstract cast glass sculpture to large-scale installation. Her work explores themes of duality and identity, gender and androgyny, and the human relationship with nature. Horn earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Yale University. She has received awards including the CalArts/Alpert Award in the Arts, several National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and a Guggenheim fellowship. She has had solo exhibitions at major institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Dia Center for the Arts, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Recently, her work has been the subject of solo shows at Xavier Hufkens, Brussels, Belgium (2012); Hauser & Wirth, Zurich, Switzerland (2012); Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, NY (2011); and Rat Hole Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2010).
