The work plays with the tension between momentum, suspension and weight of our form combined with the boundless limits of the human imagination. A swarm of figures traveling through the exhibition space, transforming it into a performative one.
Swarm Sculptures is a durational movement installation conceived by dance artist Lucy Suggate.
Influenced by swarm intelligence as a choreographic process and the body as sculpture, the work takes the infectious nature of movement to transform the single human form into a communal and collective body.
