153 Drawings Roni Horn - 153 Drawings
Thematic monograph.
“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.
Edited by Michaela Unterdörfer and Amy Wilkins.
Texts by Tacita Dean and Briony Fer.
