Images of Adrian Piper, Cornered

  1. Long A medium-skinned woman with long, black hair, a blue sweater, and a white pearl necklace stares out from a tube TV on a white pedestal in a corner. An overturned wooden table leans against the pedestal. Ten black chairs with metal legs are arranged in a triangle in front of the TV so that an audience can sit and watch the TV in the corner. To the left and right of the TV are framed documents.
