Roni Horn at the Whitney.http://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/museums/roni-horn%E2%80%94quietly-monumental/768/
Horn frequently focuses on nature and the environment, as another surprising set of portraits—of the backs of birds’ heads—reveals. Their elegant, sleek, smooth feathered pates magically take on personalities in this most human of art forms. Horn spent a good deal of time in Iceland, and a number of related projects are shown, including photographs of water in near-alchemical states, such as geysers, glacial water, and steaming pools. Books on the subject are shown in a room with a rubber floor inlaid with cast rubber text, making it a full sensory experience.
