Ms. Bennett

A work from Swoon’s well-known series dedicated to Ms. Bennett, an artist-aborigine, was exhibited at the festival. Ms. Bennett is of one of the last Australian Aboriginals to have experienced traditional nomadic culture. In this large 3×3 meter wheat paste portrait, Swoon portrays Ms. Bennett singing and telling stories that are a part of her own creativity. This work was part of an installation created by Swoon in 2011 and presented at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Boston.
