FROM SELF TO INFINITY- DU SOI A L’INFINI

Description

Is what we see real? Or are they illusions, mind-bending perspective games to interpret a chaotic Universe, with maybe a hidden symmetry? Is birth a beginning (of time, matter, space, energy) from “nothing”? Or a transition between two cycles in a perpetual process of rebirth?
Is humanity nothing more than the results of a circumstance in an ever-changing world? An infinitely small moment in the endlessness of eternity or an attempt of existence to overcome inertia and create itself? We live in a time when our perceptions of the cosmos, of our place in it, and
perhaps even of ourselves, are profoundly overturned. And we try to penetrate the secrets of the Cosmos guided by thought, knowledge, imagination, intuition. There are few elements from everyday life that remind us that we are beings of the stars. Art, like science, is about our connection to the Cosmos. Understanding that the light that scientists study is the same light that inspires artists, we let our knowledge and imagination converge and present works and thoughts that reflect
humanity’s position in the light of the Universe. Each of the two exhibitors interprets the world with their special expressive tools, through science and art, guided by knowledge, instinct, emotions, moments in their personal quest in life.
