March 2, 2007 6:30 p.m. Culling materials and subjects from the streets, Swoon creates paper cutouts and installations that re-envision the experience of urban life. Inspired by historical sources ranging from German Expressionist woodblock prints to Indonesian shadow puppets, this New York–based artist has covered the city streets with her work for over six years. She has exhibited most recently in P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center’s Greater New York 2005. In the summer of 2006, she participated in the “Miss Rockaway Armada” on the Mississippi River.
