Breach (2001)
Breach (2001), in which a young actress, seated on the floor and leaning against a wall which coincides with the gallery's own wall, fights a losing battle of composure. She marshals her strength, breaks down, then mutely sheds tears that, in this context, recall the special effects of Ann Hamilton's variously sited installations of a mechanically weeping wall.
