Double Interior (part one)

Installation, 1989-91

Description

‘Double Interior 3 continues (Fran’s) earlier investigations into mapping the presence/absence of the physical body and psychological space in architectural environments ... Double interior offers a moving and alarming portrait of the language of the ”other” – the woman as invisible sign and yet everywhere projected (particularly through advertising) ... Making a pattern and the search for a sense of self are preoccupations with those artists who are re-defining concepts of identity.’
– from unpublished review by Janis Jefferies
