Jenny Holzer’s Inflammatory Essays are abrasive, sensitive, direct and a great source for her feminist insights. During her career Holzer also worked a lot with art in public spaces and exploring language as a tool for communication but also control.
One of her most famous works ‘Truisms’ consists in quotes such as “ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE” and “PROTECT ME FROM WHAT I WANT”. She pasted them everywhere in Manhattan.
Her work is in the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., MoMa, etc.
