Interview with Vera Frenkel.

Elizabeth Chitty engages in a dialogue with the artist, discussing initially her foray into video work, moving towards a discussion of Frenkel's concern for intimacy developed both in the videos themselves and their presentation. Frenkel also remarks on the quality of experience, the creation of metaphor (as a vocabulary that signals artifice), the properties of popular culture and narrative in reference to her tapes.
