Michael Swaney (b. 1978) is a visual artist based in Barcelona. His collages, sculptures, drawings, videos, and installations explore absurdity in everyday domestic situations and challenge the idea of performance as a static object. Michael’s work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and art fairs in Barcelona, Copenhagen, Miami, New York, Tokyo, Toronto and Vancouver. In 2008 he participated in the Fountainhead Residency in Miami and in the summer of 2010 he was shortlisted for the Guasch Coranty Painting Prize.
At at Bookies, Michael Swaney and Stephen Smith talk about their collaborative art and publishing project Scrollster.
