In December 2019, Donald Trump became the third president in US history to be impeached and – although he’s expected to be acquitted, meaning he’ll stay in office – Jenny Holzer doesn’t want anyone to forget it.
The US artist, known for not mincing words with her politically-charged, text-based installations, has created a limited series of skateboards with words carved into them to commemorate the event, including the word: “Impeach.”
According toThe Art Newspaper, the boards will go on sale just in time for the vote on his impeachment (February 5), with a limited marble edition of 25 boards plus a run of 500 wooden ones.
The boards were reportedly commissioned by The Skateroom, a company that has previously run collaborations with the likes of Roger Ballen and Die Antwoord, and donates a portion of every sale to worldwide social skate projects.
“Maybe Trump will be impeached again – or the board can be an impeachment tomb stone,” Holzer tells The Art Newspaper. Part of her text also reads: “Some moments should never be forgotten, some moments deserve to be set in stone. Make America Righteous Again.”
