Locust Projects: p e r Sway by Nancy Davidson

Through Sat 20 Jan, 2018

Locust Projects is proud to present p e r Sway, a multimedia installation by interdisciplinary artist Nancy Davidson. Referencing symbols of power and control, theater and performance, history and biophysics, per Sway finds Davidson holding a distorted mirror to our bizarre and horrifying political climate, a world turned upside down and gone topsy-turvy. Known for her anthropomorphic weather balloon sculptures in her four-decades-long practice, she considers her forms to be characters that often allude to portrayals of people in literature, mass media and culture at large, reflected back through a feminist lens.

Nancy Davidson (b. 1943, Chicago, IL) lives and works in New York. Davidson is an interdisciplinary artist, working primarily in sculpture and installation. She received a BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1975. Her work has been exhibited at major institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), the Art Institute (Chicago), the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia), Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, (Ridgefield, CT), Corcoran Museum of Art (Washington, DC), Artists Space (New York), Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY), among many others.
