Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible Ocula Report Havana Biennial 2019: Constructing the Possible 17 Apr 2019 : Federica Bueti for Ocula

I first visited Havana in November 2016, a few days after Fidel Castro died, and just under a year before Hurricane Irma hit Cuba in September 2017. Since then, much has changed, including the hand-painted signs that punctuate the journey from the airport to the city centre, which today do not celebrate the revolution so much as the 'Unidad y...

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.
