Jenny Holzer

War Paintings

Topics: 

The works on exhibit at Museo Correr have been selected from a decade of the artist’s war paintings, a significant departure from the LED installations for which Holzer is best known.

The exhibition takes as its starting point declassified and other sensitive U.S. government documents concerning the global War on Terrorism. Holzer’s paintings are drawn from memoranda, planning maps, diplomatic communiqués, interrogation records, autopsy reports, and the handwritten cri de coer of detainees themselves – which prior to release to the public, the censor heavily redacted.

The transformation of documents into ravishing silk-screened and hand-painted oil on linen paintings (several times their original size) invites the visitor both to read and to look.
