One dozen unsharpened pencils with gilt printed shafts, housed in the original cardboard box with printed spine. Original straw ribbon.
Two each of six brief statements, printed on the pencil shafts. Protect me from what I want. The beginning of the war will be secret. The future is stupid. You are trapped on the earth so you will explode. Men don't protect you anymore. What urge will save us now that sex won't? Jenny Holzer is an American neo-conceptual artist, based in Hoosick Falls, New York. The main focus of her work is the delivery of words and ideas in public spaces.
