Roni Horn: 153 Drawings 1984-2012

If you were to ask me what I do, I would say I draw – this is the primary activity and that all my work has this in common regardless of idiom or material.’ ( Roni Horn in a letter to Paulo Herkenhoff, 2003) In the mid-1980s, Horn began developing a drawing technique using pigment and cut and arranged paper. The drawings carry a strong physicality which may best be compared to architecture. For the past two decades, drawing has remained an essential part of Horn’s practice. Selected Drawings 1984–2012 presents for the first time a comprehensive selection of Horn’s drawings, ranging from the artist’s initial work with pigment and varnish on index cards in the mid-1980s to the large-scale and extreme complexity of the recent drawings. Published with Hauser & Wirth Zurich/London/New York.
