9780714838656: Roni Horn (Contemporary Artists)

American artist Roni Horn is admired internationally for the quiet seriousness of her exquisitely conceived artworks. Horn has concentrated on a small, highly personal selection of subjects in her work: the tradition of Minimal sculpture, and our response to it; Iceland, a place she has visited regularly for many years; and the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Emily Dickinson. Groupings of sculptures and photographs are often presented together in large installations which invite the viewer's full, prolonged attention in the observation of precise, subtle shifts of detail or mood, offering a heightened sense of environment and presence in the world.

Independent curator and editor Louise Neri (co-curator of the Whitney Biennial, 1996) examines recurring themes and formal structures in Horn's work. Lynne Cooke, curator at New York's Dia Center, discusses with the artist her shift from three-dimensional (sculpture) to two-dimensional forms (photography); theorist Thierry de Duve concentrates on Horn's series of photographs You Are the Weather, featured at the 1997 Venice Biennale. The Artist's Choice is from a short story by Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector. This volume contains the largest collection available of the artist's eloquent writings. Their cool, simple style -- describing Iceland, or commenting on poetry and literature -- reflects the intense, pared-down ambience of her art.

From the Publisher:

This comprehensive monograph documents the work of Roni Horn, the natural successor to 1960s Minimalists Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt et al, but with a markedly 1980s to 1990s conceptual twist. Horn "disguises" her work as Minimalism, but infuses it with personal poetic references and unexpected emotion. Initially working only in sculpture, in industrial materials in machine-made forms, in recent years the artist has also turned to producing photographs, often of her "adopted" country Iceland, which she has visited regularly for the past 25 years. These photographs capture the subtle changes in lighting and mood in dozens of images of the same subject. Groupings of sculptures and photographs are often drawn together in large installations which, in the barely perceptible changes from one work to the next, demand the viewer's full attention.

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. American artist Roni Horn (b.1955) is revered around the globe for the understated force of her beautifully composed works of art. She has concentrated on a small, highly personal selection of subjects. For instance, the tradition of Minimalist sculpture and our response to it is transferred with great sensitivity into her artwork. Asphere III, for example, looks like a solid copper sphere: in fact it is slightly distorted and thus asymmetrical. Horn frustrates our notions of contemporary sculpture, sharpening our awareness of experiencing the work and offering a heightened sense of environment and presence in the world. Horn s care for detail and poetic subtlety have made her one of the world s most respected artists. Her use of poetry - such as William Blake s Tyger, Tyger or works by Emily Dickinson and Wallace Stevens - contradict the mass-produced look of the sculptures. One work, You Are the Weather (1994-5) involves numerous photographs of a young woman in the hot springs of Iceland. In this series of many nearly identical portraits with slight, barely perceptible differences in natural lighting, Horn mimics the serialization of Minimalist art for highly personal, even erotic imagery. Independent curator and editor Louise Neri examines in her Survey the intricate themes and structures of Horn s complex body of work, which never the less retains its simplicity and directness. New-York-based curator Lynne Cooke discusses with the artist the recurring conceptual concerns across different media. Belgian art theorist Theirry de Duve focusses on the enigma of identity in the photographic installation You Are the Weather (1994-5), a series of 100 nearly identically composed portraits of a young woman bathing in Iceland, which reveal varying locations, emotions and atmospheric conditions to the attentive viewer. The artist has selected a short extract from the story The Apple in the Dark (1967) by the Jewish Ukranian-born Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector (1920-77). For Lispector, as for Horn, intense attention to objects and places is combined with a careful study of the role of language in perception. This volume contains the most comprehensive collection yet published of Roni Horn s eloquent writing on her own work and its influences. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780714838656
