The atrium of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was the venue that Andrea Fraser chose for the performance she made in 2001. The artist moves through the interior of the building, one that is emblematic of nineties’ international museum architecture, while listening to the institution’s audio guide: ‘You can feel your soul rise up with the building around you.’ Recorded by five hidden cameras, Little Frank and His Carp follows the artist’s movements from different angles and shows the changes in attitude and emotion generated by the male voice of the audio guide; a voice that highlights the sensual forms of the building: ‘The museum tries to make you feel at home, so you can relax.’

The artist has to face the unknown with a positive mood and sink his teeth in without fear.
