Claire Wolf Krantz: “The Best of Visual Art in 2003” Chicago Artists’ News

“My Choice for best Chicago exhibit was Gillian Brown and Inga McCaslin Frick’s video installations at I Space gallery of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 230 W. Superior, 2nd Floor, Chicago. Here, Brown’s videos interacted with sculptural objects, while Frick incorporated a reading of Merleau Ponty with her video of swimmers. Although the artists conceived their works separately, they shared visual materials, (i.e. appropriated and original film footage), technological equipment and ideas as they jointly explored perception in relation to processes of thought and imagination.”
