JENNY HOLZER "YOU ARE MY OWN" 1996
Jenny Holzer's menacing "Truisms" first appeared in 1983 when the artist was invited to participate in a group show exploring the themes and dialogue from George Orwell's "1984".
Over the past three decades Holzer has created an impressive oeuvre consisting of objects, sculpture and public art.
From marble benches to billboards Holzer's text-based pieces have provoked the public to consider the power structures that surround us.
Some of her most famous texts include:
"Protect Me From What I Want"
"Abuse of Power Comes As No Surprise"
This photo documents Holzer's legendary first public "projection" which took place in Florence, Italy in 1996.
In the succeeding years "You Are My Own" has been projected/exhibited in public spaces in over 40 countries.
Holzer has an important exhibition history in Italy: In 1990 Holzer was the first woman to represent the United States at the Venice Biennale.
That year she won the Leone D'Oro - the event's top honor.
In the interim, Holzer has produced very few works that are domestically proportioned.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire an affordable work by one of the most distinctive artists of the 20th century.
