In this study, the sculpture samples of the artists mentioned in the Surrealism movement, which were evaluated in the biomorphic wing of the Surrealist sculpture and especially exhibited in the public space, were examined. With the Surrealist manifesto published by Andre Breton in 1924, artists began to produce works with an approach that prioritized automatism, dreams, fantasies, and ambitions instead of progressing with reason and logic. The movement first showed itself in poetry, and it’s followed with the presence in the art of painting and later in the art of sculpture. In the surrealist movement, there are categories of surreal objects created with biomorphic forms and found objects in the art of sculpture. The concept of biomorphism was examined in this study. Among the works produced by Hans Arp and Henry Moore with the biomorphism approach, only those exhibited in the public space are included. The document analysis method was used in the research. In the light of the data obtained from the literature review, it has been seen that Arp and Moore, who make biomorphic productions, have a close relationship with nature and that exhibiting their works in public space is of great importance in terms of the sculpture-environment relationship and the experience of the audience.
