The Fractal Soul
The beauty of a mathematical principle in backlit banners and soulful installations.
Fractals describe complex structures and form the DNA of nature. For many years, the artist Lara Azul has been fascinated by the formulas of the mathematician Benoits Mandelbrot and the principle of self-similarity inherent in them (visible, for example, in the boughs of a tree in which a twig is constructed like a branch and the branch is a miniature version of the tree). Deeply rooted in mythology, she also transfers this phenomenon to sociological and philosophical principles, creating sometimes beautiful, sometimes terrifying artworks that oscillate between poetry and psychology.
In the first phase of this exhibition, there are artistic creations from Lara Azul in combination with works from the duo GODsDOGs, which Lara has curated as a framework for her own installations. The artist duo's magical-looking backlit banners show colour-intensified forest images that reveal the fractal structure of trees and nature in poetic beauty. Here, the "good vibrations" urgently needed after the past year set in all by themselves, because the mathematical principle of the so-called roughness in the corresponding factor has a relaxing effect on our likewise fractally structured brain & heart.
In a second phase, which will open in May, the exhibition will include walk-in installations by Lara Azul.

A collection of works made in response to the remarkable lace collection archived in the Museo del Merletto in Burano & Palazzo Mocenigo,Venice
The aesthetic language of lace is engaged in the manipulation of cartography, creating interpretations and reiterations of 'imparaticci', the paper patterns as used by the hands of lace-makers from Burano for centuries
Concept stream of conciseness:- Wander, Navigate, Landscape, Narratives, Absence, Presence, Disorientation, Location.
