Louis Osmosis

Louis Osmosis , Big Crate , 2022. 

Working primarily in sculpture, installation, drawing and text, Louis Osmosis takes a speculative approach to form to interrogate systems of representation, duration, and performativity that enact contemporary culture. His practice revolves heavily around manufacture/craft and humor, incorporating fabrication and vernacular materials to muddy notions of genre and causality within the economy of objects. Deeply invested in dramaturgy, Osmosis’s sculptural objects operate as aspirational proxies that toggle between various affects and dispositions, while simultaneously extracting and re-staging an intrinsic lack within artistic production and cultural participation.

Louis Osmosis (b. 1996) lives and works in New York. He received his BFA from the Cooper Union in 2018.
