It could be perhaps the most innovative and interesting animal-themed art exhibition you’ll ever see. This immersive 20,000-square-foot exhibition explores the eternal connection between art, nature, and science. Who’s the artist, and where is the show?
On view at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania Beach, Florida, “Biophilia” is an amazing display of artistic ingenuity, talent, and ambition. Over 400 original works by artist Christopher Marley compose the installation, which are also made from nature — including animals, vegetables, and minerals. “All of the organisms used in his work are either reclaimed (vertebrates), or sustainably harvested (invertebrates),” according to the press release.
“Art’s purpose is to heighten our aesthetic sensibilities, to sharpen our ability to experience beauty, to empathize with those life systems we come into contact with, to derive pleasure or stimulation from our interaction with arranged elements, in whole or in part,” Marley explains. The exhibition will open on December 6 and continue through March 31, 2018.
