Black Swan Posters
I love these posters, designed by UK agency La Boca for Black Swan.

Having made a video work inspired by black swans (completely un-ballet related!) and their layers of metaphorical, historical and contemporary meaning, I feel like these images have a particular resonance for me.  The original reason I made that work was because I was so struck by the mesmerising courtship ritual of black swans the first time I saw it happening on a lake in Melbourne.

My favourite is the second from the left, the angularity and grace of the dancer’s arms that form the wings combined with the curve of the swan’s neck is a great combo.
