Jenny Holzer

Protect me from what I want. Like wanting to be at the current Venice Biennale to watch a giant yacht create a kerfuffle.

The poster below was purchased from one of the many souvenir stands in Venice at the 1990 Biennale. Jenny Holzer was representing USA  – the first lady ever.

The truism artist borrowing from the world of advertising and marketing.

If you wanted you could buy t-shirts, hats, pencils, wooden postcards and this poster.

We wanted the poster.
