Roni Horn. Everything was sleeping as if the universe were a mistake. CaixaForum Madrid
Madrid, 13 November 2014
CaixaForum hosts Roni Horn. Everything was sleeping as if the universe were a mistake, the first retrospective devoted to this American artist to be seen in Madrid, after its recent showings at the Whitney Museum in New York and the Tate Modern in London.
Having previously opened in Barcelona, the show, organised as a result of the Joan Miró Prize, which was awarded to Roni Horn in its fourth edition, is now presented in Madrid for the first time.
The exhibition at CaixaForum Madrid was conceived and designed by Roni Horn herself, who chose as her title a phrase from The Book of Disquiet, a work that the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa began in 1913 and left unfinished on his death in 1935. In this show, the artist proposes a global experience, as if Everything was sleeping? comprised one large installation. The exhibition comprises twenty-five works produced between 1996 and 2011, two of them, Pi and You are the Weather, seen exclusively in Madrid. In all these works, however, Horn interrogates the reality around her, her identity and her relationship with her environment.
Roni Horn. Everything was sleeping as if the universe were a mistake. Place: CaixaForum Madrid (Paseo del Prado, 36). Dates: from 14 November 2014 to 1 March 2015.
