Description - Wonderwater by Roni Horn
In a collaboration with 4 pre-eminent artists and writers, Roni Horn presents her latest work. The publication takes the form of four individual books contained in a slipcase, plus an envelope containing booklets of Horn's drawings. Each volume comprises a text written in response to the same selection of Horn's titles/phrases submitted to each collaborator: the sculptor Louise Bourgeois, the poet/writer Anne Carson, the philosopher/writer Helene Cixous and the film director/artist John Waters. Individually they embody the voice of each writer, together they become the content of Wonderwater (Alice Offshore) - extending further the landscape of Roni Horn's art.
