For about a week now I’ve been contemplating several titles for a new sound work I’ll be releasing, with not much of a front runner. Whenever I’m conflicted like that, my usual go to for finding a solution is to read Tony Godfrey’s book “Conceptual Art”. It’s a fantastic book that always opens the floodgates of ideas for me. Quite often, I find myself gravitating towards the chapter on ‘word art’, which of course gives ample time to a couple of the best know word artists: Jenny Holzer and Barbara Kruger.
So this week on the podcast we’re looking at the works of Holzer and Kruger, delving deep into the power of the artistic one-liner. In this episode, we take a look at one of the best known word artists, Jenny Holzer, we’ll hear more about Troy’s new sound art album and how it led him to this episode, and finally we hear an interview segment with Jenny Holzer from The Culture Show.
