Still from “Little Frank and his Carp” by Andrea Fraser

In “Little Frank and his Carp”, a 2001 video of a performance by artist Andrea Fraser, architecture, replete with its institutional frame, becomes a stimulus for masturbation. Is this architecture at its most provocative? No, unless this was part of the architect’s design intention; something which only Frank Gehry can tell us for sure. Architecture can’t take all the credit here: it takes two to tango.
