Roni Horn: Wits' End

Sale price$45.00

In the two series of drawings that comprise 'Wits' End,' Roni Horn explores the meanings and ambiguities of language, taking handwritten idioms, cliches, and colloquialisms as her source material. Horn asked approximately 300 people to write down five of these vernacular phrases, which were then made into individual silkscreens. In 'Wits' End Sampler' (2018), shown at the Menil Drawing Institute in Houston, Texas, in 2018-19, the idioms are screened in a unique configuration directly on the wall; 'Wits End Mash' (2019) consists of compositions of 75 to 350 idioms silkscreened on paper.
