Holzer is the fourth artist to take on the challenge to fill Blenheim Palace’s sumptuous 18th-century interiors and grounds with contemporary art. She will be creating new, site-specific work, directly addressing the palace’s military and political history in relation to themes which have figured prominently in her practice since the 1980s: power, conflict and activism. The exhibition will use augmented reality to explore the potential of the virtual space. This interest in new technologies and art will run through the show, which will also feature Holzer’s well-known work with LED signs, beaming into the Baroque architecture of the palace. Additionally, Holzer is developing large-scale light projections that will transform the palace grounds after dark in a series of night-time public events. Find out more about the Jenny Holzer exhibition from Blenheim Palace’s website.
