A large exhibition surveying the photographic works of Roni Horn is currently taking place at the Rat Hole Gallery. “The Selected Gifts, (1974-2015)” will be presented at the gallery’s Tokyo venue until March 8, 2018.

As the title of the exhibition indicates, “The Selected Gifts, (1974 – 2015),” features a collection of 67 photographs documenting a history of gifts received by Roni Horn over a period of 41 years. The objects photographed encompass a diverse range of subjects such as letters, books, drawings and photographs by friends, a pair of leather gloves, gold bracelets, the petrified egg of a dinosaur, a stuffed swan, and a fortune cookie fortune. Almost all of the 67 objects are reproduced in actual size, floating against a white backdrop and in the artist’s signature serial style.

Born in 1955, Roni Horn lives and works in New York. Recent solo exhibitions include a major survey exhibition at the Glenstone Museum in Potomac, MD; “Roni Horn,” Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland (2016); “Roni Horn,” De Pont Museum, Tilburg, Netherlands (2016); and “Roni Horn. Butterfly to Oblivion,” Fondation Vincent van Gogh, Arles, France (2015).

The exhibition is on view through March 8, 2018, at Rat Hole Gallery, 5-5-3-B1 Minami Aoyama Minato-ku Tokyo 107-0062 Japan.
