BIRD 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。長年に渡り継続して制作影しているアイスランドの剥製の野鳥を撮ったシリーズを収録する。近距離かつ白い背景で撮影された鳥は、後ろを向き、その独特な特徴や模様により、不可解な形やパターンが写真に浮上する。単数形で「BIRD」と付けられたタイトルにもかかわらず、今シリーズの鳥はペアで提示されており、双方の相違点及び類似点の強調を図るため、隣り合わせで見せられている。このような方法は、1980年以来作者が繰り返し用いている。作家兼キュレーターであるフィリップ・ララット・スミス(Philip Larratt-Smith)によるテキストも収録。

bird presents the culmination of Roni Horn’s long-running photographic series of taxidermied Icelandic wildfowl. Photographed at close range against white backgrounds (as though obeying the conventional format of studio portraiture) the birds are viewed from behind, their unique physiognomies and markings resulting in inscrutable shapes and patterns on the photographs’ surfaces.

Despite the singular form of the title, the birds in this series are presented in pairs, images that are hung side by side one another highlighting the differences and similarities between the two. The gesture of doubling — as an aesthetic and conceptual strategy — has been a recurrent motif for Horn since 1980, a tool that invites careful scrutiny from the viewer, altering the dynamic of the work. Horn’s images are accompanied by a text by the writer and curator Philip Larratt-Smith. Avoiding a dense, didactic reading of the series, Larratt-Smith has compiled an extended series of quotes, anecdotes and idioms, garnered from film, literature, photographers’ monographs and Horn’s own writings.
