Swoon ‘Murmuration’ 2011
Our new exhibition is a large scale installation by the New York artist Swoon. This is Swoon’s first London solo exhibition and she has spent three long weeks transforming the gallery space into a mesmerising world populated by towering sculptural figures, elaborate colours and delicate paper cuts.
Swoon is constantly seeking new and revolutionary movements to contribute her energy and creativity to. In the past these have included; gate-crashing the Venice Biennale in an armada of ships made from New York city junk, sailing the Hudson and Mississippi rivers in similar floating creations and most recently taking part in the huge humanitarian effort proceeding Haiti’s earthquake by rebuilding homes as part of the Konbit Shelter project.
Swoon has also been showing her unique creations in some major contemporary art spaces including recent shows at the Boston ICA, Museum of Contemporary Art LA and the Museum of Modern Art New Orleans.
