Claudia Fitch: Display Stand No Man's Land
July 24 – September 10 1981
For her window installation, Claudia Fitch constructed an elaborate display in the style of a shallow theatre stage which was visible from both outside the window and from the hallway inside the building behind the display area. The doors to the hallway remained open, implying that the floating cutout objects and bizarre figures presented were transient props that may have moved to new positions in the window, or “off-stage” altogether. Cast shadows and shadow illusions were essential elements in the ominous mood created as they appeared on the walls, the glass, and hallway surfaces.
