Event: 'Swoon's Submerged Motherlands Exhibit Closes (Brooklyn Museum)'Print
  Art
Date: Sunday, August 24, 2014
Duration: All Day

Swoon creates a site-specific installation in the Brooklyn Museum's rotunda gallery, transforming it into a fantastic landscape centering on a monumental sculptural tree with a constructed environment at its base, including sculpted boats and rafts, figurative prints and drawings, and cut paper foliage.

Often inspired by contemporary and historical events, Swoon engages with climate change in this installation as a response to the catastrophic Hurricane Sandy that struck the Atlantic Coast in 2012, and Doggerland, a landmass that once connected Great Britain and Europe and that was destroyed by a tsunami 8,000 years ago.
