Summary

"I show what I can with words in light and motion in a chosen place, and when I envelop the time needed, the space around, the noise, smells, the people looking at one another and everything before them, I have given what I know." Jenny Holzer's light projections have taken place across four continents, fifteen countries, and more than thirty cities. From Mies van der Rohe's Neue Nationalgalerie and Daniel Libeskind's J├╝disches Museum in Berlin to I.M. Pei's Pyramide du Louvre in Paris, Holzer's light events have worked in significant architectural spaces. Her projections onto waves and mountains in Rio de Janeiro, the Seine and Arno rivers, the mountains and ski jump in Lillehammer, and the Dune du Pyla, engage the natural landscape as quiet and affecting settings for reflection, laughter, and exchange. Through a discerning selection of full page images printed in black and white, many the result of Holzer's longstanding, working relationship with the photographer Attilio Maranzo, this book tours projections over twelve years. While the artworks themselves are transient, each image suspends the tension of the passing moment and locates the beauty of experience within the frame.
