Roni Horn

Roni Horn explores the constantly changing nature of art through sculptures, photographs, prints, and books. Hauntingly isolating and often abstract, Horn cites the geography, geology, climate, and culture of Iceland—where Horn has lived for many years—as a muse for her work. One of her photography books on Iceland, titled To Place, has been cited by several publications as being one of the most important collections since Ed Ruscha's 1960s artists' books and Bernd and Hilla Becher's publications of industrial architecture. The subject of a traveling retrospective that originated at the Whitney Museum of American Art and an episode of PBS's Art:21, Horn is widely recognized as one of the best conceptual artists of her generation.
