Fugitive Art Center presents the video installation Nächste Generation ( Next Generation ) by Swiss artist Eliane Rutishauser. This exhibit will run from 17 March to 30 April 2001. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, 17 March, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.
Nächste Generation explores the boundary between the real and unreal, using projected images of the artist to create the sense of actual presence. As with Ms. Rutishauser's photographs (presented last year at the Fugitive), the images often give the viewer a feeling of narrative: the depictions do not tell a story directly, but rather hint at some hidden significance.
Ms. Rutishauser received a degree in photography from the College of Art and Design in Zürich, Switzerland. Recent exhibits include Stipendienausstellung, Helmhaus, Zürich, and New Photographs, Galerie Schedler, Zürich. Last year she was the recipient of a grant from the city of Zürich for a studio in New York City.
