"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
From "Art in the Twenty-First Century" Season 3 (2005)
“I almost feel like I rediscover water again and again and again,” says Roni Horn. "Some Thames," Horn’s permanent installation at the University of Akureyri in Iceland, disperses 80 photographs of water throughout the school’s public spaces, echoing the ebb and flow of students and learning. While in Iceland, Horn also made "You Are the Weather," a series of some 100 close-up images of one woman. “I was curious to see if I could elicit a place from her face, almost like a landscape,” she explains. Horn’s installations bridge dimensions to “compose space” through images and text. “My relationship to my work is extremely verbal, extremely language-based,” she comments.
