UNDER THE SEA

by

Swoon, the street artist whose intricate life-size portraits made her famous, is taking her work indoors with a site-specific installation at the Brooklyn Museum. A landscape that centers on a large sculptural tree, Swoon: Submerged Motherlands includes “sculpted boats and rafts, figurative prints and drawings, and cut paper foliage.” The piece is a response to climate change, inspired both by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy as well as Doggerland, a landmass that bridged Great Britain and Europe 8,000 years ago before being wiped out by a tsunami.

Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: April 11. Continues through Aug. 24, 2014
