Artists Space

Myrel Chernick

January 17 – February 28, 1981

Myrel Chernick's gallery 205 installation "Don't Make Waves" combines films, slides and sculptural elements in a complex visual situation. A nine foot square screen perpendicular to the wall and a four foot cube serve as projection screens. Pounding waves on one screen overlap a man and a woman on the wall above. Their thoughts are projected in subtitles. This contrast of images and words creates double entendres and bring provocative new meanings to both.
