In a partnership with MuseumWeek, Verse is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Entangled Others, Paweł Grzelak, Phaust, Geoffrey Pugen, and Zancan.

We are in a race against time to conserve the beauty and diversity of our natural habitats, and to protect our ecosystems and natural resources for generations to come. Now, change depends on more than political and legal agreements: it demands a shift in attitudes, and a new perspective on humans' place in nature.

Artists can help change the way we look at the world. With digital images' role in influencing attitudes growing all the time, awareness of environmental issues is now predominantly shaped online. Looking to provide artists with a platform on which to help shape public sentiment, MuseumWeek decided to take a closer look at the work of a selection of digital artists exploring themes of life and biodiversity. The result is this exhibition, held by Culture For Causes Network at UNESCO HQ in Paris on November 25 and 26, 2022. The exhibition features works IRL and online.

Artworks explore the theme of reconciling humanity with the natural world, asking us to consider the interdependence of different species and the benefits of intelligent cohabitation. With some works meditatively contemplating life and others referencing the theory of evolution, biodiversity is central to this exhibition.

Specializing in the procedural approach enables him to mimic natural processes such as growth or decay, and indirectly guide the movement in his creations. In his most recent animated series, he combines the patterns, behaviors, and shapes observed in...
