Description

This book, published to accompany an exhibition held at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, comprises a profound study of American visual artist and writer Roni Horn’s most representative works, such as the series inspired on her journeys to Iceland, in which she gives crucial emphasis to nature and landscape, isolation and solitude. Literature and the written word are essential presences in her works, yet her oeuvre also encompasses sculptures, drawings, photographs and installations. Besides numerous images, the book includes a conversation with Julie Ault, an essential text for understanding Horn’s creative processes, references and influences.
