Roni Horn


On view through the month at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, CA is the work of artist Roni Horn. In the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles in nearly ten years, Horn ha presented a varied body of work which includes sculpture, photography and text-base works. The artist continues her investigation of form, material, time, presence and place with subtle intent. Horn has taken much inspiration from the inherent qualities of the Icelandic landscape, which provides the artist with many opportunities for references on nature and identity. Her photographic series includes images of Isabelle Huppert which capture the actress’s many different expressions and moods.

Horn was born in New York in 1955 and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and Yale University School of Art. She has received several fellowships including the NEA and Guggenheim, as well as the Alpert Award in 1998. Horn has a retrospective scheduled in 2009 at the Tate Modern, and later with the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC.
