Title: Threads of Memory and Exile: Examining the Art of Storytelling in the work of Vera Frenkel
Authors: Tuer, Dot
Keywords: Vera Frenkel
video art
New Media
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Catalogue of Image Festival Toronto, Canada 1997
Abstract: This is a testimony to the simultaneous ephemeral and tangible qualities of Vera Frenkel’s video art that years after I first viewed her videotape, Her Room in Paris, I still retain a vivid image of the room in which the central character of the tape, Cornelia Lumsden, a little known but brilliant Canadian writer, wrote a great novel in exile and then mysteriously disappeared. Dot Tuer
