About Max Hooper Schneider

Formally trained in biology and landscape architecture, Max Hooper Schneider’s knowledge of material technologies and biological systems seeps into his large-scale sculptures and installations. Using aquariums, terrariums, vitrines to display mutated habitats of flora and fauna tangled around neon lights, Hooper Schneider’s practice combines the artificial and the natural with a flair for the theatrical and surreal. These organic ready-mades conjure up visions of a posthuman world attempting to rebuild itself after an anthropogenic apocalypse, challenging viewers to reevaluate their assumed central place in the ecosystem.
