Boat/Lips Think Negative

Boat/Lips Think Negative

Nina Yankowitz. Boat/Lips Think Negative, 1987–1999.

Description:
During the 1980’s my installations began investigating the wall and floor as domains to enter. I created partial shapes that forced viewers to rely on memory in order to experience the unseen. These installations activated wall sites with negative fragments suggested as vessels composed with both animate and inanimate forms, such as body parts and boats. Inlaid into sheetrock or plaster, the negative carvings appeared as if secrets hidden in the wall.
