Item description for Roni Horn: A Kind of You by Helene Cixous...
The cover of A Kind of You features a deadpan image of artist Roni Horn holding a black-and-white image of French Feminist theorist Helene Cixous over her own face. Cixous contributes an essay to this overview of Horn's photo series' from the last seven years--You are the Weather (1995), This is Me, This is You (2000), Cabinet Of (2001), Image (2005) and Weather Reports You (2007). Each series asks fundamental questions about identity, as Cixous' essay explores in her singular way: "Roni Horn turns and returns in every way the question that haunts her: 'Who are you, Face, you who I am, whom I follow, you who look at me without seeing me, you whom I see without knowing whom, you in whom I look at myself, you who would not be without me, you whom I envelope, you who seduce me and into whom I do not enter..."
