Roni Horn: A Kind of You: 6 Portraits by Roni Horn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


These are not people, these are not things: what Roni Horn has meditated on, followed, observed, hunted, sketched, drawn, grasped, cut up, edited, cited, are the figures of her secret questions, the oracular faces to which Roni Horn turns and returns in every way the question that haunts her: who are you, Face, you who I am, whom I follow, you who look at me without seeing me, you whom I see without knowing whom, you in whom I look at myself, you who would not be without me, you whom I envelope, you who seduce me and into whom I do not enter, who are you, who is this being promised subjected to my gaze, to my objective, this being docile to my law, and who remains totally impenetrable for me? What is you? Who am I, you? Helene Cixous' "A Kind of You" gives an overview of Roni Horns projects "You are the Weather" (1995, A woman one-hundred times), "This is Me, This is You" (2000, A young girl identifying herself), "Cabinet of" (2001, A clown performing thirty-six expressions), "Index Cixous" (Cix Pax) (2005, Helene Cixous defining language), "Portrait of an Image" (2005, Isabelle Huppert impersonating herself), and "Weather Reports You" (2007, A collective self-portrait talking about the weather).
