Jenny Holzer: FOR AARHUS

An Aarhus 2017 Commission and Part of Coast to Coast

Renowned American artist, Jenny Holzer, will project words in the city of Aarhus, cast onto the façade of Aarhus Theatre and scrolling through Bispetorv.

Since 1996, Jenny Holzer has used light to cast text onto buildings, mountains, rivers, and public sites throughout Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Locations include the Spanish Steps in Rome, the Louvre Museum in Paris, and Rockefeller Center in New York.

During a projection, the powerful lamp creates a procession of text; the writing is in constant motion like credits rolling at the end of a film. Holzer will project text honouring Aarhus 2017’s ‘Rethink’ theme, to highlight the city’s cultural legacy from Viking times to the present.

Supported by the Obel Family Foundation and 15. Juni Foundation.

25th February – 6th March
