    About The Work

    "I am awake in the place where women die" was a phrase first created by Jenny Holzer in her work Lustmord (1993-1994), which she created to bring attention to the scores of sexual assaults that took place during the Bosnia War (1992-1995). This editioned piece breaths new life into a phrase from Lustmord highlighting a phrase on a functional puzzle. The phrase is taken from the poem written from the perspective of the victim. Appropriately, and symbolically, this puzzle draws upon the original inspiration for the work - the many facets and pieces of individuals and society in place for rape culture to occur.
