“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.
“153 Drawings” 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. The publication includes essays by British artist Tacita Dean; and Briony Fer, Professor of History of Art at University College London.
Born 1955 in New York, Roni Horn lives and works in New York and Reykjavik.
