SWIM Gallery presents Naked heart, a solo exhibition by Marie J. Engelsvold. This exhibition features large scale sculptures, small and large drawings, attempting to show the artists™s vulnerability and nakedness. The sculptures are fragile constructions, made with wood, yarn, textiles and foam. Most of the works in the exhibition are symmetric, and reflect the duality of life.

SWIM Gallery is a pop art gallery created by Yarrow Slaps and Auguste Somers and is located
at 509 Ellis Street in San Francisco as a project of the Luggage Store Gallery.
