JENNY HOLZER "BLACK GARDEN", 1997

Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) is a multi-disciplinary American artist best known for her text-based public art projects. 

Since the late 1970's Jenny Holzer has created an impressive body of work consisting of objects, sculpture, public art, and photographs... often revisiting the slogans and sayings she debuted at the start of her career.

In the early nineties in Nordhorn, a district town in Lower Saxony on the German-Dutch border, Jenny Holzer worked with commission from a public garden  for the first time.

Holzer felt that using electronics, such as her signature LED text/light strips, was inappropriate for the project’s location. Collaborating with the American landscape artist Dee Johnson and the local municipal gardener, they created an installation of benches and engravings by the war memorial “Am Langemarckplatz,” in their municipal park.
This very rare diptych encapsulates the project, combining a map/diagram of the park and Holzer's inclusions as well as a second piece that lists part of Holzer's text.
