A leading figure in contemporary art, Roni Horn addresses wideranging issues such as nature, ecology, identity, landscape, and language. Her sculptures, drawings, photographs, and installations intermingle material and context, aiming to complicate the relationships among object, subject, and viewer. This two-volume catalogue features works such as Ant Farm, a living colony of ants sealed between two panes of glass; Pink Tons, a four-ton cube of casted pink glass; and Gold Field, a sheet of pure, annealed gold that measures a fraction of a millimeter thick. Also included are an engaging essay by artist Gary Indiana; a photo-essay by Jerry Gorovoy, Director of the Easton Foundation; and a personal statement by the artist.
