Swoon has done a magnificent installation at the Brooklyn Museum that should not be missed. You can be carried away on a wave of beautiful chaos that offers a hopeful reincarnation after catastrophe.

This environmentally directed work was created by the Brooklyn artist who is also known for her beautifully detailed stencil work that has been posted on city streets. This exciting installation includes a recycled vessel that was in part sailed down the Hudson River in the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. Swoon lives in Red Hook, a Brooklyn neighborhood that was hard hit by the storm. She has transformed the chaos that the natural force unleashed on New York as a point of departure for connecting with the symbols of rebirth and Mother Earth, making them potent in terms of cultural life and its fragility.

Don't miss this show. Bring your camera and enjoy the beautiful, layered world of detail, color, light, shadow and space that offers a wave of micro and macro cosmic opportunities for pleasure and contemplation.
