Jenny Holzer, Protect Me From What I Want

Jenny Holzer makes art that is impossible to ignore. Coming to prominence in the late 1970s, she is best known for her text-based works constructed from ‘truisms’ that confront issues such as racism, feminism, oppression and violence.

You’ll likely have seen her words emblazoned on stone benches, electronic signs, posters, T-shirts, even condoms. ‘I like placing content wherever people look,’ she once said.

In the early 1980s she presented a series of thought-provoking slogans, including Protect Me From What I Want and Abuse Of Power Comes As No Surprise, on the Spectacolor board in New York’s Times Square.

Wherever and whenever they appear, her texts challenge, agitate and prompt reflection on the fast-changing world around us. We need this now more than ever.
