Drawing is central to Roni Horn’s practice, and the only medium the artist has used consistently throughout her career. In her Frick and Fracks series, Horn continues her exploration of pairing and doubling, which can be seen across her work in mediums ranging from photography, sculpture, and to drawing.


Installed in the gallery are 15 works from Frick and Fracks, each of which is composed of eight gouache and/or watercolor drawings on paper. Here, the artist is drawing and drawing again, repeating similar forms throughout any composition. Although language is absent from the series, the title Frick and Fracks nods to Horn’s longstanding use of idioms and slang in her work. Frick and Frack were a comedic Swiss ice-skating duo (Werner Groebli and Hans Mauch, respectively), who rose to popularity in the late 1930s after moving tothe USand joining the touring ice show, Ice Follies. Eventually, the term Frick and Frack became an English slang for two people who are so closely linkedthatthey are nearly indistinguishable.
