Talk 2: Spirituality in the Arts
Description: One day Kandinsky saw one of his paintings hanging upside down and he was surprised to find out that it still was pleasant to look at. Art history tells us that this hwas the day when he invented abstract art. In front of abstract art, the eye is not busy deciphering a representation of reality. And still, shapes on a painting can trigger emotions. Kandinsky made attempts at rationalizing the power of shapes and colors. He researched correspondances with music scales. Ultimately he was trying to define a syntax to better represent spirituality. In this talk, Thibaut Camdessus will look at some masterpieces of 20th century abstract art in an attempt to show how they can be a powerfull conduit to meditation.
