LOG (March 22, 2019-May 17, 2020), produced daily over a period of fourteen months, is a collection of drawings, quotations, collages, photographs, casual commentaries, notes on news and weather events, and original texts by Roni Horn. Known for conceptually oriented work in diverse media, Horn continues her exploration of identity and difference in LOG. The collection, with its 406 drawings, ranges from the humorous and strange to the sublime and disturbed. Lodged in this context is the complexity of daily, lived experience. The dates LOG records encompass the mundane scroll of life, the global pandemic's early days, a political system in breakdown, local bird and animal life, and radical changes in weather. It also includes more formal texts and drawings, some becoming leitmotifs threaded throughout the work. LOG transforms personal experience into an emotionally profound and unusual visual engagement. First exhibited in New York City in early 2021, this is a beguiling and immersive body of work that invites repeated viewing.
