Conceptual artist Jenny Holzer is best known for her text-based projects in public spaces across an array of media, including LED signs, billboards and printed materials. Her stark one-liners call attention to social injustice and shed light on dark corners of the human psyche. Whether questioning consumerism, describing torture, or lamenting death and disease, her use of language – sometimes mistaken for advertising – is designed to agitate and disturb the passive reception of information from damaging sources. Holzer creates a powerful tension between the realms of feeling and knowledge, with a practice that encompasses both individual and collective experiences of power and violence, vulnerability and tenderness.
