The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) will display a 20-foot tall, 400-pound installation titled 'Thalassa' by famed New York street artist Caledonia 'Callie' Curry, known as Swoon. 'Thalassa' takes its name from the Greek goddess of the sea, and was originally created for the New Orleans Museum of Art where it was on view in 2011. It will be adapted for a site-specific installation in the DIA's Great Hall.
The massive sculpture, constructed of plywood on a steel frame and covered with paper cut outs and prints, will be suspended from the ceiling of the museum's Great Hall. Thalassa's face is looking upward and her bodice is adorned with imagery of sea creatures, as well as colorful swathes of fabric. Long paper ribbons cascade beneath her like tentacles reaching into the sea. Swoon's installation at the DIA will coincide with a community mural project in Detroit's Jefferson-Chalmers district, executed with the assistance of several local artists.
