Swoon: Drown Your Boats


Swoon's first Los Angeles solo exhibition, "Drown Your Boats" opens tomorrow, 16 February 2008 at drownyourboats3.jpg


The centerpiece of the show is a modified canoe that will eventually become part of an installation at Deitch Projects this fall. The canoe will be part of the flotilla that will leave from Troy, NY during the month of August and arrive in NYC on 7 September 2008. Over the last few years, Swoon has been part of a group of “boat punks,†who have constructed their own boats, sailing down the Hudson and Mississippi Rivers using discarded building materials, trash and other found objects.

Luckily, it won’t be a scavenger hunt to see her pieces, they will all be on the walls of New Image Art gallery.
