I sat on this piece of art when I smuggled a picnic into the garden of the Guggenhiem museum in Venice in 2013. It's behind a Kapoor and because its a bench, its easily missed; inevitably you are always sitting on one part of the prose while you read the others. Here are two from the six verses by Jenny Holzer.

It pretty hot in Ukraine in the Summer; as hot as it is cold in the winter. The only shade in Donetsk's Lenin Square, is in the shadow of the monumental statue of Lenin himself. You cannot sit there too long otherwise the police move you on but it was often the place where I met my assistant, translator, producer, all round super woman Yulya Shato during the IZOLYATSIA residency. I am thinking of all my great friends in Ukraine, the world is watching.
