Roni Horn and her latest exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in Zürich. Two part solid cast glass piece titled, untitled (“consider incompleteness as a verb.”).

Only Saturdays and Sundays for three hours per day during July and September. And we timed our trip to see this house with about two million other people coming to Zürich this weekend. […]
