ZURICH.- American artist Roni Horn presents a new glass sculpture at Hauser & Wirth Zürich. Shown alongside her photographic series ‘Untitled (Weather)’, this exhibition showcases the artist’s sculptural and photographic explorations into the effect of multiplicity on perception and memory.

Entitled ‘Untitled (“Consider incompleteness as a verb.”)’, which references a passage from Canadian poet Anne Carson’s book ‘Plainwater’, Horn’s new sculpture is composed of two large glass cubes, which are matte on the sides with a smooth, glossed surface, resembling freshly cut blocks of ice. The cubes are made from a two-colour glass which reflect their surroundings. Each piece is a subtly different shade of blue and, depending on the type of light in the gallery, the time of day, and the weather outside, these shades shift from violet to lavender to aquamarine.

Horn’s photographic work, ‘Untitled (Weather)’, is being displayed across from the new glass sculpture. ‘Untitled (Weather)’ is a series related to Horn’s ‘You are the Weather, Part 2’ (2010 – 2011), the second part of a key work in Horn’s oeuvre, ‘You are the Weather’ (1994 – 1996). ‘Untitled (Weather)’ consists of groups of photographs of a woman, bathing in the hot springs and pools in Iceland.

Like the varying hues of the glass work, in each photograph, the woman’s facial expressions shift and change subtly, reflecting the weather conditions around her.

I don’t think of the object, the material thing or what is produced as the endpoint of a work. The aspiration is always the experience, which means the audience, the individual, is integral to the value of the work.’
– Roni Horn
