this fake as hell im mad
but it would be a dream .
that’s a lot of butter.
there are fucking google eyes staring into your soul from every angle and you comment on the butter
to be fair it is a lot of butter
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.
