Swintak is an interdisciplinary artist, educator and context-maker based in Montreal. Her large-scale often-collaborative projects include moving an entire house by hand without the aid of machinery, constructing the most banal roller coaster ever made in the head office of an energy drink corporation, building a full-size ship through collective improvisation, sailing a raft made entirely of pants across Toronto’s main shipping channel, attempting to give a shed consciousness, running an election campaign for fairies during the Irish referendum and drafting a series of impossible project proposals. Her recent projects include using non-invasive brain computer interfaces to animate art-administrator stress-controlled environments, producing immersive audio plays she calls “sculpture cinema”. She has co-founded a range of pedagogical contexts including Don Blanche, an experimental off-grid artist residency in rural Ontario. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally in a wide range of contexts.
