Symbiosis: Jeremiah Morris
Fri, Sept 1–Sun, Nov 5, 2017
Mansion at Strathmore
Photographer Jeremiah Morris creates multimedia sculptures from reclaimed materials and photographs. Influenced by climate change and resilience, his work explores man-made structures, nature, and their divergent paths of growth and decay over time. Sterile acrylic forms and imperfect slate and wood panels mimic man-made structures imposed upon the Earth’s natural landscape that decay or defy the test of time. Discarded photographic prints are assembled into shapes inspired by lichens, slow-growing organisms formed by the symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae or cyanobacterium on trees, rocks, in mid-air, and even in the most extreme environments. Upon these geometric surfaces, Morris’ organic-like forms, created from failures, celebrate resilience, adaptation, and the odd in-between of the natural and unnatural worlds in which humans exist.
