about the edition

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present a benefit print from Jenny Holzer: ‘MY ALLY’.

This limited edition of 100 was produced in collaboration with Powerhouse Arts in Brooklyn. Made from palladium leaf, caplain leaf and enamel ink, the edition is fabricated from similar precious metals to those used in the artist’s well-known ‘redaction paintings’.

Proceeds from the sale of this edition will benefit two non-profits: FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan ‘consumer advocate’ for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and noise in U.S. politics, and CAMFED, a pan-African movement seeking to revolutionize how girls’ education is delivered.

Sold unframed.

Ed. of 100

59.4 x 42 cm / 23 3/8 x 16 1/2 inches

Printed by Powerhouse Arts

The edition’s text is drawn from Anne Carson’s ‘If Not Winter: Fragments of Sappho’ a translation of the ancient Greek poet Sappho’s work. Holzer has made selections from this work several times before, for example carving Carson’s text into rock protrusions in Oslo’s Ekeberg Park for ‘Cliff Sappho’ (2013).
At a time when physical limitations have almost become the new norm, YOU BE MY ALLY also responded to the COVID-19 crisis by creating an experience that brought art directly to users through augmented reality technology.
