The Brooklyn Rail Aug/Sept 2003 - review by Stephanie Buhmann
In her work "Blind Spot," Norwegian artist Vibeke Jensen provides the viewer with a spy-compatible mirrored
column from which the viewer can observe the gallery space without being discovered. Or so it seems.
A camera installed on the column's ceiling records each movement inside the hiding spot and simultaneously
plays it on a monitor elsewhere in the gallery. In a simple, yet poignant fashion that is reminiscent of
Japanese sculptor Yayoi Kusama, Vibeke's focus is on the oxymoron of endless control chains: Who watches
the one who is watching?
