Albeit offering a fairly broad overview of her oeuvre, the Roni Horn exhibition at De Pont focuses on the artist’s more recent work from the past ten years, and more specifically on a number of photographic series and recent glass sculptures.
Androgyny isn’t two things, it’s everything. It’s synthesis; not this and that. It’s a state of integration.
Often working in pairs, her portrait photographs are reminders of the early iconic photo series and reflect on recurring interests in Iceland’s enigmatic landscapes, mythology, androgyny and youth. The cylindrical sculptures in blue, green, brown and white glass contrast with her photographs, drawings and texts in their minimal appearance and careful arrangement.
