American artist Jenny Holzer examines the political, philosophical and narrative possibilities of language.
This display of work by Jenny Holzer forms part of a collection of international contemporary art jointly owned by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. It is known as ARTIST ROOMS and focuses on individual rooms devoted to particular artists. Holzer’s text-based works draw upon a diversity of subjects, voices and contradictory political and philosophical positions. Since the 1970s she has found a range of different ways to disseminate these texts, from printed fliers to projections and luminous LED signs. ‘The more sparkling the work, the more it is like the signs in Las Vegas’, she has said.
BLUE PURPLE TILT, which was created specially for ARTIST ROOMS, consists of seven double-sided vertical LED signs. Its scale emphasises that this is a sculptural object in its own right. Indeed, the viewer’s response may be shaped as much by the hypnotic glow of the letters streaming smoothly or flashing abruptly as it is by the words themselves.
Most of us love to flip through the glossy pages of magazines. But what happens when we want an additional information about a topic that interests us? Focusing on this last one, designer Theia decided to present the first edition of an uncovered - live magazine. It is a project that Theia has been preparing for a long time and will be hosted in her new space in central Athens on December 10th. Fifteen celebrities, among which Alex Kavdas, will present different issues in an interactive way, one on the first floor and one on the ground so that someone can choose, just like when reading a hardcopy magazine. D-Fine styling team will show everyone how a fashion editorial is being shot, so that everyone can have an idea of what happens backstage and during a shooting. Don't miss Penny and The Swinging Cats and the Baronettes on a live show afterwards.
Causalize Labs will be there to broadcast live the whole event for those who won't make it that day. Starting at 17.00 p.m.
