Roni Horn (*1955 in New York) has been working in diverse visual and material media since the beginning of her career in the late 1970s, creating drawings, photographs, texts, artist books, and sculptures.
There are themes that Horn deals with repeatedly in many of her pieces. Primary among them are the questions concerning one’s ability to transform and multiply one’s identity and about the process of showing deviations between the nature of things and the use of artistic means to manifest them visually.
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition includes prominent works of the artist from the past twenty-years, as well as new works, which will be shown for the first time at the Fondation Beyeler. In constantly new ways they appear before the viewer as a process of becoming that is again set in motion by the world, moving beyond any kind of fixed identity.
