Best's analysis of Schuppli's multimedia installation "Slow Pressure" calls attention to issues of domestic violence, discrimination and women's oppression/agency. Emphasis is placed upon the psycho-somatic aspects of feminine conditioning, especially women's passivity. K. Wallace's brief consideration of the artist's past work focuses on how space becomes gendered. Artist's statement. Biographical notes. 25 bibl. ref.
