Jenny Holzer . . . employs electronic signboards in her untitled installation from the 1990 Venice Biennale, but without the space of repose offered by Threshold. In an enclosed room, 21 led signboards surround the viewer, flashing messages in a welter of languages. Selected from the artist's Truisms, Inflammatory Essays, and other writings, the "reports" that appear on her signboards are more subjective than Viola's. They voice diverse, often controversial opinions, in statements such as "people who don't work with their hands are parasites" and "murder has its sexual side."
