Roni Horn was born in New York in 1955. Initially influenced by Minimalism, led by Donald Judd, she then distanced herself from it, developing a personal focus on the themes of time and identity. In Horn’s artistic practice, identity – both individual and geographic – is not a fixed and monolithic concept, but variable and multi-faceted. This is echoed in her wide-ranging practices and media: drawings, books, photographic installations, sculptures etc. This diversity lies at the heart of her work, which gives form to the process of becoming, as shown by the pieces she has created inspired by the Icelandic landscape, the countless shades of the water, and the changeable geography of human features.
Roni Horn’s work has previously been exhibted at Punta della Dogana in the exhibition “Prima Materia” (2013-2015), in “In Praise of Doubt" (2011-2013) and in "Slip of the Tongue" (2015-2016).
