DESCRIPTION

Jenny Holzer is an American conceptual artist that focuses on the obstacles commonly approached in life from power and war to death and violence. Starting in the late ‘70s Holzer compiled a list of “truisms” which she circulated around public spaces. 

TRUISMS is a show inspired by artists I have worked with previously, artists whom I have come to respect, and how I see Holzer‘s precedence relevant to their vision. The artists have taken the words of Holzer and reinterpreted them presenting their own approach to the obstacles she has chosen to expose.
