until 30.06.| #3916ARTatBerlin | Galerie Brockstedt shows from 24. May 2023 the exhibition The Path of Least Resistance of the artist Gabriela Torres Ruiz.
The architecture of flow – or the path of least resistance
How can art contribute to the perception of nature in its complexity? And: How can it promote perception, sensitivity and empathy for other forms of life as well as an awareness of a harmonious balance between human existence and the natural world?

Gabriela Torres Ruiz deals with these leading questions. She was inspired by Adrian Bejan’s theory “The Constructal Law” and, based on it, researched flow patterns that determine the structure of the entire universe. She found these flow patterns in rivers, neuronal networks, lightning, in the lungs, in the growth form of plants and in social dynamics. Every flow architecture on Earth follows the natural tendency to want to flow more easily. The evolution of its movement always pursues the goal of reaching equilibrium and minimising resistance.

Gabriela Torres Ruiz sees the world in associations and connections. She searches for affinities between movements, light, shadows, contours and repeatedly encounters forms and patterns of similarity. Diptychs or triptychs are brought into dialogue with each other by the artist.

It is the way of looking, which is oriented towards similarity, affinity of form and movement, that peels out the diptychs and triptychs and brings them into dialogue with each other. This view of what is interconnected seems at once unusual and wonderful. Perceiving the world in its interconnectedness and in its relatedness has become rather foreign to us. What separates us is often what we focus on. Our perception is oriented towards what we can distinguish.

The new path of least resistance seems promising to us here, as does the new kind of perception that Gabriela Torres Ruiz’s photographs show us.
