Wonderwater: Alice Offshore




In this collaboration with four preeminent artists and writers, Roni Horn presents her latest work: Wonderwater (Alice Offshore). The publication takes the form of four individual books contained in a slipcase, plus an envelope of drawings by Anne Carson. Each volume comprises a text written in response to the same selection of Horn's titles/phrases: 19th C. Water; Cabinet Of; Dead Owl; Gurgles, Sucks, Echoes; Her, Her, Her and Her; Untitled (Yes); Water, Still; You are the Weather.The respondents are sculptor Louise Bourgeois, poet/writer Anne Carson, philosopher/writer Hélène Cixous and film director/artist John Waters. Individually, these booklets embody the voice of each writer. Together they become the content of Wonderwater (Alice Offshore)--further extending the landscape of Roni Horn's art.
