NEW YORK, NY.- The FLAG Art Foundation presents two exhibitions: One, Another, a group exhibition curated by Stephanie Roach on the 9th floor and Roni Horn, Double Mobius an exhibition of sculpture and photography by Roni Horn, on the 10th floor. The exhibitions will be on view from June 29 through September 2, 2011.

One, Another
Through painting, sculpture, photography and installation, One, Another explores coupling and interconnectedness in the realms of love, nature and spirituality. Historically one another is an abbreviation of the one the other and in that form was used only for two people. The clauseone another reflects this reciprocal relationship and action between them. The separation of the two words by a comma emphasizes the distinction of a whole and its parts.

Emanating from the painting The Lovers completed in 1963 by Remedios Varo, the exhibition incorporates reoccurring motifs of mirrors, nature, cosmos and existential forces to investigate themes such as transformation, sexuality, love, narcissism and identity.

Featured artists include Diana Al-Hadid, Agnieszka Brzezanska, Louise Bourgeois, Joseph Cornell, Tom Friedman, Robert Gober, Subodh Gupta, David Hammons, Jim Hodges, Cindy Sherman, Swoon, Rachel Whiteread, Remedios Varo, and Fabio Viale.

Roni Horn, Double Mobius
The exhibition, Double Mobius, includes a selection of works from Roni Horn's multi-disciplinary oeuvre of sculptures, works on paper, photography, and books. Horn's work often addresses issues of gender, identity and androgyny, while crafting complex relationships between the viewer and her work. The materials, often used with remarkable virtuosity and sensitivity, take on metaphorical qualities and relate key themes to viewers with great visual power.

Such is the case with Double Mobius, the work from which the exhibition derives its title. Though she has been fascinated by the tremendous mythological and economic significance of gold since her childhood, she has made only three sculptures using this material in her career spanning four decades: Gold Field, 1980-82; Paired Gold Mats, for Ross and Felix, 1994-95; and Double Mobius, 2009, shown here.

In Double Mobius, unlike in her earlier gold sculptures, the artist places the gold at eye level, so the viewer can experience the material up-close or its "simple physical reality," as she refers to it. Installing the sculpture in daylight exposes the work to shifts with changes of the light and weather. The pairing of two potentially identical objects has been a central theme in the artist's work for many years. Double Mobius, takes the doubling aspect to another level, as these ribbons are arranged in the form of a mobius strip, a geometrical form that appears to have two sides but confounding has only one, lending a simultaneous impression of intimacy and infinity.

Born in New York in 1955, Horn lives and works in New York . She received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Yale University . Horn has received the CalArts/Alpert Award in the Arts, several NEA fellowships, and a Guggenheim fellowship. She has had one-person exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Dia Center for the Arts, New York ; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. Group exhibitions include the Whitney Biennial (1991, 2004); Documenta (1992); and Venice Biennale (1997), among others.
