Jenny Holzer condom
Untitled (Expiring For Love Is Beautiful But Stupid)
New York City, USA: Self-published, 1985
2 3/8 x 2 1/4”
Edition size unknown
A latex condom packaged in a tinfoil wrapper with printed text. I bought this copy from Art Metropole (years before I worked there) for a few dollars. They were sold out of a large jar dispenser, not unlike the way they would be sold at a store like the Condom Shack. They are next to impossible to find now.
Also available, at the time, was Protect Me From What I Want. A different series, with a clear plastic package, included other truisms, including Men Don't Protect You Anymore.
