Read more about the artist

The American artist Roni Horn has exhibitions in the most important places of the world. With this exhibition at De Pont, the accent lies with work from the past ten years: her monumental sculptures of glass, photographic works and recent series of drawings. Through the addition of drawings and photographs from the 1980s and 90s, the visitor nonetheless has a fairly broad view of her oeuvre. The last room of the exhibition is devoted solely to Horn’s recent glass sculptures. After the narrowing space and the intimate wool-storage rooms, the visitor arrives in an open and light space where an ensemble of ten cylindrical sculptures in blue, green, light-brown and white glass provides a captivating final chord.
