mixed media installation

Exhibited at Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, 1995, Venice Biennale.

"Site-specific installation at the 17th c. pallazo, using newspaper classified ads to examine the private longings behind the public language of the mass media. A dotted line of relationship ads encircles the room; isolated first names float on the walls; lines from obituaries are wrapped around a thick rope dropping from the ceiling; the fireplace-the hearth- is blocked with wax bricks carved with text. In the far corner a dictionary appears to hover above the floor; it is covered with wax in which is imbedded a spiral of personal pronouns in different languages cut from newspapers."--Artist's slide list
