Alumna Corin Sworn to Represent Scotland at Venice Biennale
We're extremely proud to announce that FVIM alumna Corin Sworn ('02) will be one of three artists representing Scotland at the prestigious 2013 Venice Biennale.
The Common Guild will present projects by three of Scotland’s most compelling and consistently interesting artists: Sworn, Duncan Campbell, and Hayley Tompkins. The exhibition will be presented in the Palazzo Pisani, Venice from June to November 2013.
Corin creates atmospheric installations that weave fiction and history through film and objects. She is currently artist-in-residence at St.John’s College, Oxford, in association with the Ruskin School.
Sworn said of her participation in the project, 'the prospect of working in Venice feels both formidable and thrilling and I look forward to seeing what work I can make for this dramatic and intriguing atmosphere.'
Alumni Liz Magor and Steven Shearer have represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in previous years.
