GIVE ME PARADOX OR GIVE ME DEATH by Roni Horn

アメリカ人アーティスト、ロニ・ホーン(Roni Horn)の作品集。2024年3月から8月にかけてケルンの「ルートヴィヒ美術館(Museum Ludwig)」で開催された展覧会に伴い刊行された。タイトルは、18世紀アメリカの独立運動を指導したパトリック・ヘンリー(Patrick Henry)が演説の締めくくりに用いた有名な言葉「我に自由を与えよ、然らずんば死を(Give me liberty, or give me death!)」から由来している。「自由」の部分を「パラドックス(逆説)」に置き換えることで、自身の作品における重要な側面である、矛盾した二つの答えを和解させることを示唆している。

その典型的な例として挙げられる作品が、自身の姪の思春期に2年間撮影し、その写真を向かい合う2つの壁に展示した「THIS IS ME, THIS IS YOU」(1997-2000年)であり、作家の人生を通してさまざまな瞬間を捉えた「a.k.a.」(2008-2009年)である。

本書では、初公開となる1970年代後半のドローイングや、1983年から2018年にかけて制作された顔料を用いたドローイングなど、100点を超える展覧会作品を紹介している。

Working across sculpture, photography, drawing and artist’s books, Roni Horn addresses identity, mutability and unease. The title of this book, which accompanies the artist’s exhibition of the same name at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, is borrowed from Patrick Henry, a prominent representative of the American independence movement in the eighteenth century who ended a speech with the famous words: “Give me liberty, or give me death!” By replacing liberty with paradox, Horn nods to her interest in the reconciliation of two contradictory answers, an important aspect in her work, which also relates to her use of doubling or pairs. A seminal example of this is This is Me, This is You (1997–2000), photographs of the artist’s niece taken over a two-year period during her adolescence and presented on two opposite walls, or a.k.a. (2008–09), which captures the artist at different moments throughout her life. The catalogue presents the more than 100 works in the exhibition, including drawings from the late 1970s that have never been shown before, as well as a selection of pigment drawings made between 1983 and 2018.
