Visionaries: Jenny Holzer

Projection by Jenny Holzer, 2003, in Brakel.  Reads: "Labor is a life-destroying activity/ Lack of charisma can be fatal/ Leisure time is a gigantic smoke screen."

[Projection by Jenny Holzer, 2003, in Brakel.  Reads: "Labor is a life-destroying activity/ Lack of charisma can be fatal/ Leisure time is a gigantic smoke screen."]


Jenny Holzer is known for her Truisms and other written pieces, usually short, absolute statements delivered in a public space without further context.  As a collective whole, the statements are contradictory, and seem to both explode and uphold mainstream society's dominant ideology, leading one to wonder who is "speaking" each statement and why.  Holzer's statements have been used on t-shirts, printed on flyers, emblazoned on scrolling LED displays, graven in stone, tattooed on human flesh, and projected in enormous letters of light on public architecture or open landscapes.  Fittingly, they also appear on Twitter.
