Roni Horn

Hauser & Wirth gets a change of scene. After Paul McCarthy’s burlesque pirates, the gallery located at One Monte-Carlo is hosting an exhibition on American artist Roni Horn, whose early work was influenced by minimalism. The visual artist, who loves to confuse viewers on the subject of identity – as in her previous exhibition at the Bourse du Commerce–Pinault Collection in Paris – is shown here in a new light, in relation to film. And what film could better examine these themes than Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece, Persona, in which the identities of two seemingly unconnected women – an actress who has lost her voice and an extremely talkative nurse – end up merging inextricably? The comparison brings out the themes of body, desire and sexuality in the work of Roni Horn, particularly her photographs and sculptures.
