Verena Bachl is a contemporary artist based in Berlin. Her work focuses on converting scientific questions into artistic concepts. Her artworks explore philosophical and experimental theories by transferring them into objects, sculptures, and installations.
 
Since her artworks are not static, but in flux concerning their spatial arrangement as well as their visual appearance, they provoke poetic moments of momentum. By the inclusion of the viewer, she produces environments that evoke an architectural and psychological impact, are themselves dynamic, and convey notions of reciprocity and entanglement as an experimental system. The resonant spaces thus created explore concepts such as clarity and essence in their minimalistic approach, without excluding the subjective nature of perception. In the process, established concepts of perception are reinterpreted or questioned to achieve new perspectives of cognition.
 
In search of a materialization of knowledge and phenomenological effects, her works often stage the border between mysticism and rationalism by encoding and decoding information. By synthesizing art and science, works of art are created that generate a dyad of the natural and the anthropogenic through the symbiotic intertwining of both fields of knowledge.
