Book Description Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. To Place is a series of artistís books by Roni Horn that examine the relationship between identity and place. Each volume takes Iceland and the artistís evolving experiences there as its starting point. In a 1995 interview with Claudia Spinelli from the Journal of Contemporary Art, Horn explains, ďThe entrance to all my work is the idea of an encyclopedia of identity. It is best represented by the books, the series To Place, which is very important to me. It is a series of books, each one of which adds to the whole in a way that alters the identity of it retroactively.Ē To Place: Pooling Waters is the fourth book in Hornís To Place series, following Bluff Life (1990), Folds (1991), and Lava (1992). The first volume contains a collection of photographs taken between 1990 and 1993 of Icelandís geothermally heated waters and the structures built to access and utilize them, ranging from power plants and swimming pools to remote and inaccessible hot pots. The second volume is a collection of 36 texts including short anecdotal pieces, essays, and short stories gathered from Hornís experiences in Iceland. Hardcover.
