Helle Søndergaard, the arts facilitator at Louisiana, will take you on a tour of the current exhibition featuring acclaimed American contemporary artist Roni Horn. Horn's work spans multiple media, including film and photography. The exhibition, characterized by a seemingly razor-sharp and cool aesthetic, contrasts themes of humanity and landscape, permanence and changeability, and obscurity and transparency, all expressed through the dynamic interplay of light, water, and weather.

The exhibition delves into themes of subtle undertones, secret messages, and erotic signals, showcasing Horn’s art in dialogue with classic films by directors such as Bergman, Dreyer, von Trier, Chabrol, and Hitchcock. These pairings reveal the profound influence of cinema on Horn’s work and highlight an intense focus on sexuality, the body, eroticism, and desire—elements often hidden beneath the surface of her conceptual imagery. Key works from throughout her career are featured, illustrating these intricate themes.
