FORMAT: Hardcover

Artist Caledonia Curry is known as Swoon to admirers who follow her work on the street and in galleries all over the world. She is perhaps best know for her life-size prints and figural paper cutouts she has pasted on walls for the past ten years, each portrait taking on new life as it is slowly destroyed by the elements. Much of Swoon's work is like this - beautiful and powerful , but ephemeral. Her projects are often grand in scope, requiring months of preparation and huge numbers of collaborators to make them a reality. And then they dissapear. . . This book captures Swoon's work - her portraits, boats, installations, and parties - and presents them with reflections from collaborators and colleagues. Deitch projects owner Jeffrey Deitch provides an introduction to the artist and her work, and other contributors include: cultural critic and curator Carlo McCormick, Nonsense NYC editor Jeff Stark, journalist and Toyshop-member Rollo Romig, gallery director Thomas Beale, and playwright Lisa D'Amour. Swoon herself writes the captions and an essay on her Miss Rockaway project.
