Press for p e r Sway at Locust Projects Basel Miami
"Locust Projects presents p e r Sway, a multimedia installation by New York-based interdisciplinary artist Nancy Davidson from November 18, 2017, through January 20, 2018. 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."
"One was a razor-sharp display of New York–based artist Nancy Davidson’s hilarious and, at moments, frighting sculptures at the stalwart local nonprofit Locust Projects. There are looming eyes, swirls of DNA, and other enlarged corporeal forms, made out of fabric and displayed together in a wildly lit room that points to Pee-wee’s Playhouse, bygone amusement parks, and ’80s dance clubs. It is a seductively sinister display, a Venus flytrap of a show."

In her sculpture and installation works, New York-based artist Nancy Davidson (born 1943), recipient of a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship, celebrates and satirizes popular culture. A central example is the American cowgirl. This publication combines archival cowgirl photographs with images of Davidson's sculptures, photographs of photographs and installations.
