To get to Roni Horn's home and studio in upstate New York, you drive through farm villages, past horses grazing on meadows, and after a few turns, reach a gate leading to a rugged dirt road. Even on a balmy spring day, the road is covered in a layer of ice. It's a long, winding ascent until you reach another turn, passing by two seal-brown...

'You got some good questions for me?'Hard to say if Roni Horn was being friendly, impatient or intimidating. She exudes classic New York directness, which some might see as abrupt. She had a head cold, and she was fighting sneezes.One of America's sharpest-minded artists of the past 30 years, Horn has made important photo books, sculpture and...

‘REVIEW: RONI HORN, WHEN I BREATHE I DRAW PART I’ AT MENIL DRAWING INSTITUTE Related Press ‘REVIEW: RONI HORN, WHEN I BREATHE I DRAW PART I’ AT MENIL DRAWING INSTITUTE Arts and Culture Texas : 4 March 2019

There is something about the gauzy lighting at the Menil Drawing Institute that makes me mistrust my eye. A scrim seems to hang in the air, making the walk toward Roni Horn's drawings especially dreamy, at once hazy and hushed. This magical approach creates the effect of an unfolding: each drawing emerges gradually, in all its inexplicable and rich...

American artist Roni Horn has something akin to an illusionist's ability to make you do a double take, stand still and figure out what it is you are actually seeing, which is quite a feat in an age of mass attention deficiency. It's something evident in her new show in Hong Kong, a survey of her work that spans four decades.The works on display...

In Iceland, you can see the contours of the mountains wherever you go, and the swell of the hills, and always beyond that, the horizon. And there’s this strange thing: you’re never sort of hidden; you always feel exposed in that landscape. But it makes it very beautiful as well. Roni Horn (b. 1955) has visited Iceland regularly since...

Cakewalk. Quonset hut. Written on the Wind. Eyefuck. Words and more words fill Roni Horn's drawings in Butterfly Doubt, the largest exhibition of the American sculptor's drawings I have seen. Drawing precedes writing. For Horn the two are inextricable. There is no end to the words: movie titles, names, dirty words, nouns, conjunctions and slang....

Roni Horn Related Press Roni Horn W Magazine : 1 November 2009

Roni Horn's subtle but commanding art demands a focused eye to be seen for what it is. The same can be said for Horn herself. With the exception of her eyes, which are the brilliant blue of a far-off sea, she is almost devoid of colour. Her salt-and-pepper hair is shorn so short as to blend with her pale face. Her mannish black shirt and jeans add...
