Cinga Samson: ‘a different conversation on representation’ Ocula Conversation Cinga Samson: ‘a different conversation on representation’ By Jareh Das, New York

Cinga Samson 's paintings lay bare the complex relationship between contemporary life, African traditions, globalisation, and representation. His strikingly sombre portraits contain similarities to those of contemporary painters such as Toyin Ojih Odutola, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye , Kehinde Wiley , Florine Démosthène, and Tunji...

Roni Horn talks remote control in her upstate New York retreat Related Press Roni Horn talks remote control in her upstate New York retreat 27 June 2019, Wallpaper*

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...

Roni Horn draws attention with first museum exhibition at Menil Drawing Institute Related Press Roni Horn draws attention with first museum exhibition at Menil Drawing Institute 7 March 2019, Houston Chrronicle

'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...

‘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 4 March 2019, Arts and Culture Texas

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...

Art that makes you do a double take: Roni Horn’s mesmerising sculptures in Hong Kong Related Press Art that makes you do a double take: Roni Horn’s mesmerising sculptures in Hong Kong 4 December 2018, South China Morning Post

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...

The beasts within: Artists tap into their wild sides for a roaring show Related Press The beasts within: Artists tap into their wild sides for a roaring show 26 November 2016, Wallpaper*

Rarely before have we seen such a long and varied list of contributors, as we do in Marian Goodman Gallery's group show Animality . The 'cast of creatures' ranges from dogs, camels, fish to octopi, and charts a history from George Orwell to Gabriel Orozco by way of Marcel Broodthaers. Curator Jens Hoffmann, never one to turn down a...

Roni Horn: Mutability and geology Related Press Roni Horn: Mutability and geology 18 November 2016, Aesthetica

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...

Adrian Searle encounters: Roni Horn's mysterious drawings that just won't leave you alone Related Press Adrian Searle encounters: Roni Horn's mysterious drawings that just won't leave you alone 5 June 2015, The Guardian

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 with Jarrett Earnest Related Press RONI HORN with Jarrett Earnest 18 December 2013, The Brooklyn Rail

Since entering the art world in the early 1980s Roni Horn has produced an ever-expanding cosmos of objects, images, and text that are as paradoxically coherent as they are multifaceted. Her exhibition Everything was sleeping as if the universe was a mistake, currently at Hauser & Wirth (November 11, 2013 - January 11, 2014) contains two...

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

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...
