Roni Horn: Another WaterRoni Horn: Another Water

Published by Steidl.

What do you know about water? Only that it's everywhere differently. --Roni Horn.
In 2000 Roni Horn published Another Water, an examination of the water of the River Thames through extensively footnoted photographs. This new edition of Another Water includes a new edit of the photographic aspect of the work. Water is a central theme for Horn: as a component of weather, a defining feature of her beloved Iceland, and as a beautiful, changeable element on which life depends. Another Water is an ode to the substance of water but also to its impact on identity and imagination--in Horn's words, "You can't talk about water without talking about oneself."

Roni Horn: Everything Was Sleeping as if the Universe Were a MistakeRoni Horn: Everything Was Sleeping as if the Universe Were a Mistake

Published by Turner.
Interview by Julie Ault.

As the winner of the fourth Joan Miró prize, American artist Roni Horn (born 1955) received a monograph exhibition of her work at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and CaixaForum, which this volume accompanies. Though Horn considers drawing to be the activity unifying all strands of her work, she is prolific across multiple media, including sculpture, photography, books and works on paper. Her artistic practice links aspects of nature, landscape and materiality with the mechanics of perception and communication. As affirmed by this recent award, Horn’s oeuvre is endlessly open-ended. Roni Horn: Everything Was Sleeping as if the Universe Were a Mistake includes an interview with the artist by Julie Ault.

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Ingvild Goetz, Larissa Michelberger, Rainald Schumacher. Text by Kirsty Bell, Ingvild Goetz, Roni Horn, Christy Lange, James Lingwood, Rainald Schumacher, Aveek Sen.

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.

Roni Horn: 153 DrawingsRoni Horn: 153 Drawings

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Michaela Unterdörfer. Text by Tacita Dean, Briony Fer.

“If you were to ask me what I do, I would say I draw--this is the primary activity and that all my work has this in common regardless of idiom or material,” wrote Roni Horn in a letter to Paulo Herkenhoff in 2003. Born in 1955 in New York, Horn began developing her drawing technique in the early 1980s, using powdered pigment and varnish to produce soft, austere, floating abstractions that explored her now familiar preoccupation with pairs. Over the subsequent two decades, drawing has remained an essential dimension of Horn’s art--one that she has infused with her keen sculptural sensitivity to texture and the grander, almost spiritual possibilities of mass and volume. 153 Drawings presents for the first time a comprehensive selection of Horn’s drawings, ranging from the artist’s initial work with pigment to geometrically collaged works and extremely complex more recent drawings. This publication includes essays by British artist Tacita Dean and Briony Fer.

Roni HornRoni Horn

Published by Kukje Gallery.
Text by Elisabeth Lebovici.

Well known for her sober sculptures and photographic meditations, Roni Horn (born 1955) has spent the last 30 years developing a body of work that explores the complex relationship between the viewer and the visual experience. The artist frequently installs a single piece on opposing walls or in adjoining rooms, or conversely mounts a series of closely related images in succession, as a vehicle for investigating the issues of doubling and identical experience that inform her overall practice. This volume is published for Horn's second exhibition at Kukje Gallery in Seoul and presents over 15 works ranging from photographic installations to sculptures and drawings. It includes her most recent series such as Portrait of an Image (with Isabelle Huppert) and Through 6, plus installation shots from important exhibitions throughout the world. Accompanying the many exquisite reproductions is an insightful essay by noted critic and curator Elisabeth Lebovici.

Roni Horn: Well and TrulyRoni Horn: Well and Truly

Published by Kunsthaus Bregenz.
Edited by Yilmaz Dziewior. Text by Gary Indiana, Julie Ault.

Roni Horn's art engages a variety of media to elicit uplifting minimalist effects from sober materials, to scrutinize identities in the passage of time across a person's face, to make poetical effects in language and to track minute alterations in nature. These investigations often assume serial or paired formats. Among Horn's best-loved works are the "Library of Water," for which she photographed water from a number of glaciers in Iceland, and her stick casts of lines from poems by Emily Dickinson. Published for Horn's major exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, and designed in collaboration with the artist, Roni Horn: Well and Truly gathers the artist's major works of recent years, from artist's books to drawings, photographs and sculptures, and supplies a broad overview of her career.

Roni Horn aka Roni HornRoni Horn aka Roni Horn

Published by Steidl & Partners.
Introduction by Donna De Salvo, Carter E. Foster, Mark Godfrey. Text by Briony Fer.

Over the course of more than 30 years, Roni Horn has developed a body of work of concentrated visual power, classical in its restraint, beauty and sensitivity to material. Horn's pieces invite conceptual engagement, though her practice defies easy categorization, and also elicit in the viewer a refreshed attention to matter itself, to "make being here enough" (as the title of a previous monograph put it). Her subtle explorations of the complex energies between object and subject have expanded the vocabulary of every medium in which she works. This slipcased, two-volume set accompanies the most comprehensive overview of Horn's work to date--which opens at Tate Modern in London in February 2009 and then travels to New York's Whitney Museum of American Art in November of that same year--and has been overseen by the artist herself. The first volume includes a plate section of works in the exhibition with an essay by Briony Fer; the second volume, the subject index, is fully illustrated and includes texts on a variety of topics related to Horn's work by a host of prominent artists, critics, curators and cultural figures, alongside the artist's own writing.
Born in New York in 1955, Roni Horn achieved international recognition in the 1980s, and her works have been the subject of numerous major exhibitions since. In 2007, she undertook Artangel's first international commission, creating Vatnasafn/Library of Water, a long-term installation in the town of Stykkisholmur, Iceland. She has had solo exhibitions at numerous leading art institutions, including Inverleith House, Edinburgh (2006), Fotomuseum Winterthur (2003), The Art Institute of Chicago (2004), Folkwang Museum, Essen (2004), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2003), Dia Center for the Arts, New York (2001-02) and Museo Serralves, Porto (2001).

Roni Horn: BirdRoni Horn: Bird

Published by Steidl/Hauser & Wirth.
Text by Philip Larratt-Smith.

Bird is the culmination of Roni Horn's long-running photographic series of taxidermied Icelandic wildfowl. Photographed at close range against white backgrounds which recall conventional studio portraiture, the birds are viewed from behind, abstracting their varied physiognomies and markings into inscrutable shapes and patterns. Despite the title's singularity, the birds in this series are presented as diptychs in order to compare and contrast different species. This gesture of doubling-as an aesthetic and conceptual strategy-has been a consistent motif for Horn since 1980, serving to invite careful scrutiny from the viewer. Horn's images are accompanied by a text from writer and curator Philip Larratt-Smith. In place of the usual catalogue essay, Larratt-Smith has compiled an extended series of quotes and anecdotes from film, literature, photographers' monographs and Horn's own writings.
Roni Horn was born in 1955 in New York, where she continues to live and work. Since earning her MFA from Yale University in 1978, she has shown her sculptures, installations and photographs extensively throughout the world. She has had solo exhibitions at the Dia Center for the Arts, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and her work will be the subject of a major retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2009.

Roni Horn: Herdubreid at HomeRoni Horn: Herdubreid at Home

Published by Steidl.

Iceland is really the center of action for me, Roni Horn has said. "Since I grew up in New York people think I'm escaping from all its lunacy. Not at all. When I go to Iceland that's where I get nervous, where I think: 'Oh my God, this is intense.'" Horn's new book Herdubreid at Home is a collection of photographs of the Icelandic landscape. As with previous works by Horn, its focus is specific: the book concentrates on Iceland's beloved geologic mascot, the mountain Herdubreid, and on the related work of Stéfan V. Jónnsson, who painted the mountain throughout his life, and whose images have found their way into the homes of Icelanders across the country. Through this singular attention Herdubreid at Home conveys an intimacy that is particular to the book form. As Horn says, "a book is really a sensual…experience and I use these books to focus people in this very intimate one-on-one relationship."

Roni Horn: Weather Reports YouRoni Horn: Weather Reports You

Published by Steidl & Artangel, London.
Introduction by Roni Horn.

Everyone has a story about the weather. This may be the single thing each of us holds in common. And though the weather varies greatly from here to there, it is, ultimately, one weather that we share. Small talk everywhere has occasioned the popular distribution of the weather. Some say talking about the weather is talking about oneself. And with each passing day, the weather increasingly becomes ours, if not us. Weather Reports You is one beginning of a collective self-portrait. Over the past two years Roni Horn has been working with a small team in the south west of Iceland gathering personal testimonies from people talking about the weather. These "weather reports" include descriptions, reflections, memories and stories based on experiences of the weather that range from the matter-of-fact to the marvelous. The different nuances and usages of language suggest that the weather is not just a matter of meteorological conditions but is, in Horn's words, "a metaphor for the physical, metaphysical, political, social and moral energy of a person and a place."

Roni Horn: Index Cixous, 2003-05Roni Horn: Index Cixous, 2003-05

Published by Steidl.
Artwork by Roni Horn. Text by Dave Hickey.

Inspired by the philosopher and writer Hélène Cixous, which whom the photographer and artist Roni Horn has collaborated before, Index Cixous questions the nature of language in its most fundamental sense and proposes a version--one without words, but which can be read as any other. Both Horn and Cixous are concerned with communication wrought out of material space. Cixous writes about women's language arising from the female body, and she argues for a new language, one not in thrall to patriarchy but that acknowledges the life-giving force and history of the feminine.

Roni Horn: Her, Her, Her And HerRoni Horn: Her, Her, Her And Her

Published by Steidl/Dangin.
Artwork by Roni Horn.

In this collection of 120 black-and-white photographs, Roni Horn takes us on a journey through a locker room in Reykjavik, Iceland. With minimal movement between the camera and subject in succeeding frames, and through the use of a slow-shutter technique, this finely crafted body of work provokes the viewer to contemplate the subtleties of each image. A blur behind a portal suggests that someone else is in the locker room with the viewer. Room numbers, open and closed doors, and intersecting hallways give clues to the surroundings, and as we turn each page of the book, we sense the subtle shifting of time and space in photographs that reflect a sculptor's attention to the details of surfaces, repetition and form.

Roni Horn: Cabinet OfRoni Horn: Cabinet Of

Published by Steidl.
Artwork by Roni Horn.

The modalities of appearance mark Roni Horn's series of 36 head shots of a clown. Originally seen in her Clowd and Cloun installation, a series of alternating images on the two motifs of the cloud and the clown, Horn's stunning photographs of the inevitable clown (he always looks the same) disintegrate the very consistency that makes a clown recognizable as a clown. The clown is a constant, a symbolic form whose identity is rooted in a conventionally defined appearance (red bulbous nose, a shock of bright frizzy hair, white pancake skin, an ear-to-ear grin), one that occludes the specifics of the persona--the player--who temporarily assumes that guise. Cabinet of repeats 36 times the dissolution of the clown's appearance and thus, perhaps, the defining features of the clown itself.

Roni Horn: Earth Grows ThickRoni Horn: Earth Grows Thick

Published by Wexner Center for the Arts.
Contributions by Amada Cruz. Text by bell hooks.

Emily Dickinson's poems stand alone in the English language in their severe yet wild shapeliness and unhindered dexterity of thought. In Earths Grow Thick, the American artist Roni Horn put those poems--or lines from them--to new uses, incorporating her words in a series of austere, stick-like sculptures. Horn makes similar use of William Blake, but her sympathy with the work of Dickinson is clear, and results in a beautiful form or word sculpture. This handsome catalogue is published in conjunction with the first exhibition to present the four bodies of Horn's work comprising the Dickinson sculptures. The illustrations are complemented by texts ranging from Judith Fox's interview with Horn to bell hooks' intimate recollections of her childhood introduction to Dickinson's work.
