The moving moment. A movement that is a moment.
Lara Koch´s art accompanies drawing, painting, photography, printing technology, film and sculpture. She makes art books that combine her work. Hand in hand.
Symbols from mythology, great philosophical questions and daydreams are the spark for her art and written poetry. Inspired by poetry and nature.
Friedrich Ratzel in `The Silence of Nature`: ". . .
There is no silence in nature that is only silent because the ear cannot pick up any sounds. When I am in a place where a large orchestra is ready at any moment to shower me with the flood of tones, I do not feel silence, I live in the expectation of life that will stir, but feel the silence of the moment twice strong. So it is in nature, which, full of inner life, is always ready to move and therefore is eloquent in the deepest silence. But the more that is lacking that which is speaking in nature, the quieter it appears to us. . . . "
A moment of lost self, of being caught up in something that seems incomprehensible.
Rushing bodies. Lara Koch's sculptures inspire the viewer through touch. The longing for physical fusion and connection. A kiss. Moments in which the hand is immersed in water. Flat stones jump over the calm lake. Devoured.
Images, symbols caress the senses and freeze an instant yet timeless moment for eternity. In the flow of creation, the works seek deceleration and a direct connection with the body. Her body becomes part of the sculpture. These body fragments merge with that of the viewer. The beauty of our individuality and yet symbols of our community. Fragile our skin. Interface to the inside and outside world.
Paul Klee writes: "The artist is a person, himself nature and a piece of nature in the space of nature."
