her intricately cut, life-sized portraits
have covered abandoned buildings and warehouses in cities around the world. Often found in beautiful states of decay, her wheat-pasted installations are populated by realistically rendered people going about everyday activities in a cityscape of her own invention.
For the ICA's fifth installation of the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall, Swoon's installation will extend from the elevator atrium to the lobby, soaring 40 feet up to the ceiling - the largest installation to occupy the Fineberg Art Wall. The work, titled Anthropocene Extinction, is composed of streams of intricately cut paper which connect key sculptural elements within the installation, including a 200-pound, suspended bamboo sculpture. The exhibition is accompanied by an ICA-produced video featuring installation footage and an interview with the artist.
