EXHIBITION | The soul of all things
See the exhibition “The soul of all things” by Franjo Mlinac, in Bol, on August 25th at 21.00 hours. The exhibition will be open until September 9th.
ABOUT | If we recall Aristotle’s philosophy of nature and his definition of all-natural substances as components of form and matter, we will enter this exhibition armed with tools for its interpretation. The matter is what takes form, and form is the way matter is organized, but also much more than that. It is the nature of complexity and its internal principle of change. According to this philosophy, we call the form of all living beings a soul. Assuming that all objects visible in these photographs are inanimate things chosen by matter by the human hand and form determined by the human soul, we can conclude that these useful objects are an upgrade of human complexity, which means that we can define their form as a soul. . I gradually came to this conclusion by collecting and archiving objects for the future Steven Ethnographic Collection and hanging out with them in the silence of a photographic studio. I had the opportunity to listen to their stories and the experiences they have gained through long-serving human needs to help them create new useful items, prepare food, light the way, have fun and have fun.
What, then, would these objects be than projections of the human soul, because, let’s not forget, some of them have been in use for over 2000 years, such as ancient vessels and ancient game cubes.
Let us imagine how many human hands, needs and desires have left in them a part of their experience, cognition and battle throughout that time and have breathed into their form and form a part of the human soul.
Fortunately, we live in times when thinking like this is not heresy but just another way of looking at things. Artistic freedom allows the author to interpret his work within the framework of his experiences, while freedom to consume art allows observers to align their focus with the author or sharpen it in another direction according to their own beliefs and experiences. Therein lies the beauty of the daily re-reading of the world that surrounds and fills us, and the scale of all things lies precisely in the eye of the beholder and in his soul.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
