  • American artist Roni Horn (b.1955) is admired internationally for the quiet seriousness of her exquisitely conceived artworks
  • Horn has concentrated on a small, highly personal selection of subjects in her work: the tradition of Minimal sculpture; Iceland, a place she has visited regularly for many years; and the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Emily Dickinson
  • Groupings of sculptures and photographs are often presented together in large installations that invite the viewer's prolonged attention in the observation of precise, subtle shifts of detail or mood, offering a heightened sense of environment and presence in the world

In The Press

'The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about.' (Artforum)

'A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists.' (The Sunday Times)

'Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment.' (The Art Book)
