JENNY HOLZER "FOR PAULA", 2005
Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) is a multi-disciplinary American artist best known for her text-based public art projects. She was the first woman to represent the United States at the 1990 Venice Biennale.
Since the late 1970's Jenny Holzer has created an impressive body of work including objects, sculpture, public art, and photographs... often with the slogans and sayings from the debut of her career.
Throughout her oeuvre Holzer decisively challenges political and social structures. Whether questioning consumerism, describing torture, or lamenting death and disease, her use of language (sometimes mistaken for advertising when installed in public spaces) is designed to disrupt and disturb.
One of the most important German artists of the 20th century, Modersohn-Becker is an inspiration to Holzer, and often addressed the motif/theme of "Mother and Child" in her work. In the staircase of the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum, Holzer erected a 12 meter length digital neon billboard with glowing blue text as an homage to the artist Paula Modersohn-Becker in 2005. This limited edition print was released to coincide.
