In collaboration with the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, the American artist Roni Horn (b. 1955) is presenting an extended form of a photographic work she developed in 2005, Portrait of an Image (with Isabelle Huppert): sixteen striking interventions comprised of selected motifs from the serial work are distributed in Frankfurt’s urban space, while the complete one-hundred-part series of portraits is being shown in the walkways of the rotunda of the Schirn. This is the very first staging in public space of this kind within Roni Horn’s artistic oeuvre. The two-part series Portrait of an Image (with Isabelle Huppert)—each of which consists of fifty photographs in sequences of five motifs each—is based on a collaboration between Horn and the French film and stage actress Isabelle Huppert.
