This fall, the Fondation Beyeler will be presenting You are the Weather (1994–1996) by the American artist Roni Horn (*1955). In the one hundred portraits of a young woman, the viewer encounters the same face time and again in the water of an Icelandic thermal spring. Since 1975, the artist has regularly travelled to the Nordic volcanic island, whose unique landscape is still an important source of inspiration for her today. You are the Weather shows not only how changeable we are as human beings, but also how the volatility of the weather is reflected in a hundred, subtly different facial movements.
