London’s Tate Modern, will be exhibiting what it describes as the most significant overview of American artist Roni Horn’s work to date. Horn trained as a sculptor but this exhibition will show the full range of her practice as a photographer, draughtsman, installation artist and writer.
Displaying together for the first time works in different media by the artist from 1975 to the present, the exhibition will include sculpture, early watercolours and vast new drawings alongside Horn’s photographic installations. From 1975 Horn began to make regular excursions to Iceland, its landscape and isolation acting as a central influence on her practice. There will also be a display of Horn’s books, many of which respond to the landscape and geology of Iceland.
