Jenny Holzer / Inflammatory Essays


Jenny Holzer‘s Inflammatory Essays installation was love at first sight. It consists 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.
