Jenny Holzer Can’t Protect You Anymore
"But imagine the shock and surprise of seeing art like this for the very first time in the late 70‘s. Some people who saw it probably didn’t even recognize it as art, they just read the text, felt something deep inside of them stir, and knew it had to do with the pain, sadness, happiness and fear within all of us. The romantic in me always imagines someone going home from work and stopping by one of Holzer’s posters. They read it closely and love it, continue on with their lives with that one phrase stuck in their minds, but never hear of the artist Jenny Holzer again."
