Based on the holdings of the Goetz Collection in Munich, and accompanying a 2013 exhibition there, this volume offers a concise Roni Horn overview. It includes Horn’s best-known series, such as You Are the Weather, To Place, a.k.a., Some Thames and Cloud and Clown. Throughout these sequences, Horn’s abiding motifs recur: water, weather, her adoptive home of Iceland, and more formal qualities such as repetition and permutation. The book shows how Horn’s major works can be experienced in ever-new constellations, arrangements and contrasts within the exhibition context. Also included here is a collection of key writings by Horn--“Making Being Here Enough,” “I Can’t See the Arctic Circle from Here,” “My Oz,” “Island Frieze,“ “When Dickinson Shut Her Eyes” and “Simple and Complete”--plus an interview with the artist conducted by James Lingwood.
