Arno by Jenny Holzer

Jenny Holzer is most famous for her series of Truisms, short maxims, sometimes serious, sometimes ironic, that she writes or appropriates to comment on contemporary culture. Her first Truisms from the 1970s were printed in black ink on white posters and wheat-pasted around New York, but later she incorporated modern technology, displaying her texts on LED screens. This LED, essentially erotic poetry, encapsulates notions of violence and desperation spinning out of control. These emotionally-charged phrases, such as “I SHOW YOU/ I FEEL YOU/I ASK YOU/I DON’T ASK/I DON’T WAIT/I WON’T ASK YOU/I CAN’T TELL/I LIE” project feelings of deception and pain.
