Lara Ögel

For The Moving Museum Istanbul, Lara Ögel‘s work is inspired by the color Turquoise, the dominant color of the location which the site-aware installation is displayed. A copper bowl holding Turquoise stones purchased by the artist through the artist fee that is funded by The Moving Museum is displayed next to a unique publication titled A Guidebook to Healing with Turquoise. The work intends to produce a dialogue about the healing properties of Turquoise some of which are owning to one’s voice and speaking the truth – while also applying these properties accordingly to the context in which the work and the exhibition resides.
