Organic Beings

Artist: Puxuan Zhou
Curator: Yuan Xu

New York City, March 29, 2024 - :iidrr Gallery is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition titled "Organic Beings," curated by Yuan Xu and featuring the extraordinary artworks of Puxuan Zhou. The exhibition will run from March 29th to April 7th, 2024, with an opening reception on March 29th at 6 p.m.

The "Organic Beings" exhibition explores the intricate fabric of contemporary societal boundaries, where individuals often yield their independence to navigate within constrained freedoms. This prolonged exposure gradually erodes the essence of individuality, obscuring the delicate realm of subconsciousness where profound emotions lie dormant and forgotten.

Spanning a diverse spectrum from traditional art forms to sculptural expressions, "Organic Beings" transcends into virtual realms, embarking on a transformative journey through immersive landscapes. Puxuan Zhou's artistic vision seeks to unveil the raw authenticity veiled behind societal masks, using varied mediums to evoke suppressed emotions and weave intricate narratives of human struggles and unspoken emotions.
Within this framework, compromises often resonate with a sense of exploitation, shaping perceptions and molding identities. Zhou's artwork serves as a catalyst for introspection, encouraging viewers to rediscover their genuine selves and delve into unexplored emotional territories. This exhibition beckons a profound exploration of subconscious realms, fostering a deeper connection with authentic emotions and a nuanced understanding of the human condition.
