Roni Horn: The Sensation of Sadness at Having Slept Through a Shower of Meteors
By Aveek Sen
This book brings together new works by American artist Roni Horn (born 1955), continuing her 30-year artistic exploration of time, memory, and perception. Horn's captivating yellow-green cast glass sculptures, simultaneously evoking land and sea, are juxtaposed here with her major photographic series "You Are the Weather, Part 2," completed in 2011. Consisting of 100 photographs of a woman bathing in the hot springs and pools of Iceland, "You Are the Weather, Part 2" documents the subtle shifts in her countenance over short periods of time.
