Over the past two decades, Tom Friedman has explored various approaches to self-portraiture, from sculpting his likeness out of an aspirin tablet to monumental figures that tower over 30 feet tall. Wall, however, is among Friedman’s first departures into video. Conveying the illusion of a ghostly hand knocking and waving at the spectator, the work could be read as a self-portrait, reflecting the artist’s subtle but intangible presence in the gallery.
