Exibition is a part of ‘Beyond the visible” project supported by Gorzów City Council.
Exhibition supported by Culture Ireland.
Chaos is a primal emptiness that everything emerged from. Hesiod, a Greek poet acted between 750 and 650 year BC wrote “at the beginning was Chaos”. A Greek word “chaos” (χάος) means among others: “yawning”. Later with the appearance of the Cosmos concept (order of the universe), Chaos became the opposite term related to disorder.
This term gained a new importance thanks to the group of the scientists who created so-called Chaos Theory. They investigated, such as Edward Lorenz (since 1961), the regularity in the weather changes and other unstable environments. They were searching for an order in the random happenings. The butterfly effect theory was created stating that the initial, very small changes introduced in one environment might cause the huge differences in the future (e.g. avalanche). The graphs of the chaotic processes’ algorithms are fractals – resembling all shapes that are known in nature: leaves, trees, river systems, human nervous system, crystals.
The Chaos exhibition refers to random proceedings in art such as works of John Cage or Dick Higgins in poetry in the 50thies. Chaos can be observed everywhere around – in the weather or in functioning of the analog and digital media. Noise, usually considered as an unwanted element is becoming an object of the observation. As an abstracted object it can be observed in all its magnificence.
An exhibition was accompanied by the cycle of concerts of artists using chaos in music and popular scientific lecture by Marek Sitko.
