I Can Burn Your Face

I Can Burn Your Face is a text-based neon light installation by artist Jill Magid that plays off of the phrase “To burn a face” used by the Dutch secret service (AIVD) to mean exposing a source’s identity. The series, which has been altered over time, is a direct presentation of Magid’s own notes, written upon meeting participating members of the AIVD. The neon lights are even produced in the artist’s own handwriting.
