This will be the first United States career survey of the pioneering artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila. Ahtila’s provocative, intensely mesmerizing moving-image installations picture what it means to be human, to experience transcendence as well as frailty, to be awed by nature, and to reason with loss. This selected survey of the past twenty years of Ahtila’s multichannel installations includes works from every period of her career, and it features the North American premiere of her newest work, the four-channel installation Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1, 2014.
