Issue 81
March 2004

‘Kilimnik loves old New York, old television programmes (especially The Avengers and Bewitched) and 18th-century genre paintings. She loves eras – the 1960s, the 1890s and the 1780s. She loves Russia, Russian Ballet and the Russian Tea Room. She loves sparkly things such as snow and glitter and chandeliers; loves the shadows in empty drawing-rooms and the twilight haze in the forest.’ – Steven Stern is enchanted by the work of Karen Kilimnik in the March issue of frieze.

Tom Morton interviews Philippe Parreno about his recent exhibition at Kunstverein Munich, the ghosts in his work, collaboration and talking scores with Pierre Boulez.

Also featured: Alex Farquharson on Haluk Akakce, Dominic Eicher on Erik van Leishout, Olivia Plender on Johanna Billing, Dan Fox on Katy Dove and Kirsty Bell on the cunningly passive-aggressive work of Jeppe Hein.
