Francis Ruyter’s recent work turns to the archive as subject matter, abandoning the use of self-made photographic source material in favor of appropriation of a self-indexed version of the The Farm Security Administration – Office of War Information Collection, housed at the Library of Congress, which includes photographs created from 1935 to 1944. There is a relationship between this new work and the drawing-driven works that Ruyter showed in NYC in the early 90’s. This presentation will feature both bodies of work.
