Roni HornThe Pavilions, Passage
The 2017 survey exhibition Roni Horn in the Gallery explored the artist’s (b. 1955) interest in intermingling material and context, seen here with her installation of Water Double, v.3, 2013–2015, which incorporates the surrounding light, architecture, water court, and viewer into the work itself. The sculpture is considered by the artist to be one of her greatest achievements—it was long her goal to achieve a neutral “water double,” a solid cast glass duo in black and white. Years of research and experimenting led to the fabrication of the clear glass and matte black forms on view.
