bios, morphe
March - April 2024 | New York
“Derived from the Greek words bios (life) and morphe (form), Biomorphism refers to abstract shapes that evoke the forms of living things like plants, organisms, and the human body.”


bios, morphe  was a fundraising group exhibition that explored how elements of historical Biomorphism manifest in contemporary artmaking, continuing to serve as a tool for making sense of oneself, one’s environment, and one’s position in the world. The artists in the exhibition present the familiar as unfamiliar, engage absurdity to critique social issues, juxtapose unexpected imagery, and make human and alive that which is not. This exhibition was co-presented by Civil Art and Loft121 and was held at Maison Mono.

In this collaborative endeavor together with Loft 121, a diverse group of artists engages in a seamless dialogue through visual representations of the uncanny and the biomorphic.
