Vera Frenkel

by Victor Coleman

Vanguard, May 1982, v. 11, no. 4, p. 40

This review examines Vera Frenkel's Likely Stories: Text/Image/Sound Works for Video and Installation, a survey of six videotapes from summer 1978 to 1981and a reprise of the installation Her Room in Paris, which continues to develop Frenkel's parapsychoanalytical investigation of Cornelia Lumsden, a character who very neatly straddles the fact/fiction line, and whose persona challenges the predominantly empirical nature of truth.
