Gerasimos Floratos

Born 1986 in New York, NY. Lives and works in New York.

A first generation Greek American and native New Yorker, Gerasimos Floratos’ paintings and sculptures play with the idea of site specificity and the notion of what it means to be ‘rooted’ in a single place. His works employ psycho-figurative bodies as mechanisms for charting space in many forms; psychogeography of the globalised world, societies or microcosms built through commonalities of practice, and the internal space of the mind. For the artist, the slouchy alter egos present throughout his work operate as sites for exploring the relationship between the material and psychological bodies. The coded visual language present throughout his practice is partnered with a unique lexicon from which he draws titles for the works and exhibitions.

Floratos’ work is currently on view in the Zabludowicz Collection, New York, located in Time Square, where Floratos was raised, and still continues to live and work. Recent solo exhibitions include: Compass, Pilar Corrias, London, Hymn, Chateau Boisgeloup, Gisors, France (2022); Nodes, Pilar Corrias, London (2020); Bismuth, Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York (2020); There’s a sidewalk inside this gut, Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin (2019); Slangwich Motel, Schloss, Oslo (2018); Soft Bone Journey, Armada, Milan (2017); Big Town, Pilar Corrias, London (2016); White Columns, New York City (2016). His group shows include Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, London (2019); Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin (2018); Pilar Corrias, London (2018); Salon 94, New York City (2016); The Journal Gallery, Brooklyn (2016).
