Review of Jenny Holzer: Sophisticated Devices at Sprüth Magers
Jenny Holzer: Sophisticated Devices
Sprüth Magers 1 June - 18 August 2012
“When you’ve been someplace for awhile you acquire the ability to be practically invisible. This lets you operate with a minimum of interference” (from the Living Series, 1980-1982). Yet, despite having been on the art scene since the 1970s, Jenny Holzer (born 1950), whose text-based public artworks have been projected across venues as imposing as billboards in Times Square and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, is anything but invisible.
