American artist Roni Horn will present a new glass sculpture at Hauser & Wirth Zürich. Shown alongside her photographic series ‘Untitled (Weather)’, this exhibition will showcase the artist’s sculptural and photographic explorations into the effect of multiplicity on perception and memory.
Entitled ‘Untitled (“Consider incompleteness as a verb.”)’, which references a passage from Canadian poet Anne Carson’s book ‘Plainwater’, Horn’s new sculpture is composed of two large glass cubes, which are matte on the sides with a smooth, glossed surface, resembling freshly cut blocks of ice. The cubes are made from a two-colour glass which reflect their surroundings. Each piece is a subtly different shade of blue and, depending on the type of light in the gallery, the time of day, and the weather outside, these shades shift from violet to lavender to aquamarine.
