Renate Buser   Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear



December 5, 1998 - January 17, 1999

Organized by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery with funding assistance from The Canada Coucil for the Arts, Pro Helvetia Arts Council of Switzerland, and the Cultural Department of Basel-Stadt.

During her six-month residency at the Merien Studio in Montreal, Swiss artist Renate Biser worked with notions of transformation of the body both figuratively and metaphorically. Through her camera lens, Buser's subjects successfully construct themselves into human and architectural topographical landscapes. Her images continue to find in architecture a subject of study with infinite potential both aesthetically and politically. Like many artists of her generation, Buser confirms that in a culture dominated by the power of the media, the photographic image continues to control the status quo. The subtle humour of the artist's work can be vigilantly political in its message.
