Augusta, 16

The Jenny Holzer exhibition was quite small, but it managed to fit so much inside. The bright lights were so intriguing; it was as if they were setting the tone for the gallery, like the room in a way was controlling and changing peoples’ emotions. They drew me in and made me want to look at them more. In some areas of the exhibition I felt confused because I didn’t understand the abstract nature of the graffiti art. However, I think this confusion actually made me even more interested as I wanted to be challenged and understand more viewpoints. I found it weird how Holzer used benches as an art form and that we could actually touch them. I didn’t even know we were allowed to touch the art in an exhibition. I think it gave the exhibition an edge because I felt like I could interact freely with the art.
