Swarm 2019


8 December 2018 - 13 January 2019


Artist(s): Gretta Louw


SWARM is a poetic envisioning of the intermingling of the digital and the physical by Munich-based Australian artist Gretta Louw.

The work is informed by research into the recent spread and evolution of Medusozoa (jellyfish) in contaminated oceans. Darkly optimistic about unexpectedly thriving lifeforms, the work looks at the issue of digitalisation through the lens of non-human subjectivity.
