Matthew Marks is pleased to announce that the next exhibition in our fifth floor gallery will be watercolors by Roni Horn.
For Kafka's Palindrome (1991), For Pair Field (1992), For How Dickinson Stayed Home (1992) and For When Dickinson Shut Her Eyes (Nos. 891, 1027, 1695, 886, 1040, 352) (1993) are the titles of the four watercolors. Unlike Horn's pigment drawings that specifically relate to sculpture installations from the past two years and have never been exhibited before. In three of the drawings Horn uses literary sources to develop ideas about place and placement. A group of poems by Emily Dickinson and a line from one of her letters are the basis for two works and a sentence from Kafka's notebooks is the inspiration for another. A two-part work is an exact template for the placement of elements in the sculpture installation, Pair Field.
The Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland has organized an exhibition of Roni Horn's pigment drawings titled Rare Spellings which opens there on March 20 and travels to museums in the Hague, Vienna and Cologne.
