Things That Happen Again: For a Here and a There, 1986-1991
This work in solid copper was installed at the Chinati Foundation by Donald Judd and Roni Horn in 1988. It is on long-term loan from the Judd Foundation. The work consists of two identical truncated cones that are 35 inches long, tapering from a diameter of 17 inches to 12 inches. The pair is part of a 1986-1991 suite consisting of four sets of paired, solid copper forms, each hand-lathed to duplicate mechanical identity. The entire suite is titled Things That Happen Again, and also includes For Two Rooms, For a This and a That, and For Things That Are Near.
