EVERYTHING WAS SLEEPING AS IF THE UNIVERSE IS A MISTAKE, RONI HORN

Posted on November 26, 2013 by Editorial Staff

Have a walk downtown Chelsea and stop by Houser & Wirth Gallery. Roni Horn, born in 1955, is all in there. Major American Artist, who’s muse is Iceland and its particular geography, geology, climate and culture is exhibited with  ‘Everything was sleeping as if the universe were a mistake’. Gallery is filled with large format drawings and two multi-part sculptures that continue Horn’s exploration of the nature of perception, memory, and identity. Horn’s glass installations are a symbol of perfection and a symbol of the relationship of time with space and light. They peacefully lay in the gallery floor and shines brutally. Glossy, absolutely natural but artificial at the same time, they are an experience to be walked through. A must seen, until the 11th of January 2014.
