"I Cover You" is a poetic and mysterious example from one of Jenny Holzer's legendary Italian projections.

In September 1996, over a three-day period, Jenny Holzer realized one of her first highly influential public "projections" occurring in Florence, Italy on the Arno Riverbank. 

In the succeeding years the poem/text of "You Are My Own" has been projected/exhibited in public spaces in over 40 countries. 

This work is one of nine images of this seminal and iconic projection that comprises the "Xenon" portfolio.

Holzer has an important exhibition history in Italy: In 1990 Holzer was the first woman to represent the United States at the Venice Biennale. 

That year she won the Leone D'Oro - the event's top honor.

During her career, while Holzer has created numerous memorable works, She has produced very few that are domestically proportioned.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an affordable work by one of the most distinctive artists of the 20th century.
