Jenny Holzer - SURVIVAL, 1983-1985 (exhibited as part of Creative Time’s 42nd Street Project 1993)
"Like the Jenny Holzer pieces, you’ve got a lot of people saying, ‘What the fuck is that? What the fuck is that supposed to mean?’ And it’s like, well, why are you angry about that and you’re not angry about anything else you see here? About drug dealing, about people with drugs, about homelessness, but you’re getting mad about this sign because people feel it doesn’t belong here. And they feel all the other stuff does." (Theatre Electrician) (x)
Twenty years later, these still feel shocking in the best way. Jenny Holzer forever.
i think me relobbing this is my first ever tbt. for the record: i was in ballet for a week and didn’t even get to wear a tutu in our show because my costume was a grey sweat suit. what was up with that.
Very limited “songs to sleep on” tapes made by my friend Mat who runs Television Records (Cower, Rainbow Person). Translucent dreamy smoke grey. You will love. Pick one up here: http://televisionrecords.blogspot.com/ or from me or my bandcamp!
