Roni Horn: Part I and Part II

October 17, 2001–June 16, 2002, Dia Chelsea


Roni Horn has built a body of work in a variety of media that engages physical space and consistently assigns an active role to the viewer. For this exhibition, Horn has created three new photographic series and a sculpture in glass, continuing her interests in the construction of identity. Through juxtaposed sequences of images of facial expressions and natural phenomena, Horn explores the relationship between the instantaneity of photography and the play of constancy and metamorphosis in nature and human emotion.
