The same and not the same: Roni Horn’s ‘Selected drawings’ at Xavier Hufkens (Brussels)

Sure, your attention will first be drawn to those large drawings, looking like giant roadmaps left by extraterrestrials, including strange codes you’re unable to crack. But in the end it was the room with smaller drawings I kept returning to. Drawings focusing on those pairs that are a recurring theme in Roni Horn‘s practice as an artist. Selected drawings 1984-2012, at Xavier Hufkens (Brussels; through November 24) is a slightly altered version of the exhibition that was on show this summer at Hauser & Wirth Zürich. It is the first survey exhibition dedicated to the pigment drawings of the acclaimed American artist who works across a wide range of media, but who considers drawing to be her ‘primary activity’. I recommend you catch it before November 17, so you can drop by at Jeff Koons at Almine Rech just around the corner too. A catalogue will be published by JRP/Ringier.
