From Biomorphism to Abstract Expressionism

Forms, signs, gestures.

Forms, Signs, Gestures: From Biomorphism to Abstract Expressionism is an exhibition that brings together a diverse group of works by extremely different artists. By using unusual organic forms, illegible calligraphies and impetuous strokes, these artists formulate an alternative, sometimes even implausible and convulsive way of representing the environment around us. The exhibition covers the 1930s until the present day, inviting us on a journey through works that challenge our gaze. Either through the materials used (bamboo, wood shavings, wire, felt, jute, polystyrene, stone, etc.) or through the plastic technique applied (collage, assemblage, fabric), the works on display allude to the need to subvert certain established norms of representation, while showing us a disorientating and unattainable world that requires tools to strip off the false sequins that subjugate it.
