RONI HORN at Castello di Ama
In Untitled (“One can recognize...”), Horn has sited a rounded glass element in a rustic room tucked away in one corner of the Villa Ricucci. This installation stages an unmediated encounter, precisely scripted yet metaphorically open, with the inherent properties of her chosen material. The glass element is illuminated solely with natural light from a single window, and its pale bluish white color alters with the hours of the day and the changing seasons. The specific light quality of Chianti is thus given a material presence that resembles a complex landscape. Perplexing yet beautiful in its irreducibility, Untitled (“One can recognize...”) makes a paired form with the unique identity of Castello di Ama.
