The Use of the Static

by Stuart Marshall

Fuse, Mar. 1980, v. 4, no. 3, pp. 164-168

A description and review of two installation pieces by Tamara Krikorian; Vanitas and Tableau. Marshall notes that Krikorian's installations have a relationship to narcissistic video work through her use of mirroring video and technical use of duration. There are references in the works to broadcasting news and to 17th Century Dutch Painting. Ideas are explored concerning how Krikorian invites relations to her work to representation and the viewer.
