Tallahassee #2 (from the series Anti-Gun Truck), 2018

Made in 2018, Anti-Gun Truck is an installation series in which a truck bearing poignant slogans on its side pulls up by specific locations: Trump Tower, the White House, a cemetery. Tallahassee #2, for me, was particularly disheartening. The dismally dark truck – which was like an automotive Grim Reaper, and brandished the words ‘TOO LATE NOW’ in white – was positioned in front of a Florida graveyard. The graveyard in question, however, wasn’t an ordinary graveyard: it was one of the burial places for students killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre.THOM JAMES, Jenny Holzer In Conversation with Francis Morris , The White Review, July 2018
