Portrait of an Image

September 7, 2019 – 15 September 2019

Peder Lund is proud to announce a photographic intervention in the public space of Oslo by the renowned American artist Roni Horn (1955- ). From September 7-15, the city centre will be subtly infiltrated with motifs by the artist.

The artistic intervention Portrait of an Image is a variant, in temporary form, of the earlier work Portrait of an Image (with Isabelle Huppert) (2005), a photographic series which comprises 100 images in which Horn captured the face of the French actress reflecting a wide range of emotions. For the photographic series, Horn photographed Huppert in twenty sequences with five images each; in each sequence, the actress briefly slides into one of her earlier roles, so that her face expresses personalities that do not exist in reality but nevertheless offer stunning and seemingly intimate encounters.
