Roni Horn – Pair Field, 1991
solid forged copper, stainless steel
eighteen different pairs of identical objects
In her Pair Object series Horn's produces two identical objects out of materials such as copper, steel and glass and displays them in close, but not immediate proximity to each other. The work explores a sort of tension as the two identical objects are altered minutely by the different spaces that they occupy.
Similar to her work 'You Are the Weather', where she took photos of a girl in a thermal bath milli-seconds apart. She asks the audience to experience an almost identical form as an act of rememberance, an echo or repetition that allows us to reconsider our initial perceptions.
