Jenny Holzer / Inflammatory Essays

 

Jenny Holzer‘s Inflammatory Essays installation was love at first sight. It┬áconsists of 24 short texts, each one hundred words long, arranged in twenty lines printed in Times Roman Bold Italic, each sheet measuring 17 x 17-inches. When first shown (1979-82), Holzer pasted them throughout the streets of Manhattan, choosing each location by subject matter and printing each in a different color for viewers to be able to tell the difference in messages. They were recently shown together as a group at Oracle in Berlin, Germany.
