Chinese calligraphy – The supreme visual art form

“In China, from a very early period, calligraphy was considered not just a form of decorative art; rather, it was viewed as the supreme visual art form, was more valued than painting and sculpture, and ranked alongside poetry as a means of self-expression and cultivation. How one wrote, in fact, was as important as what one wrote. To understand how calligraphy came to occupy such a prominent position, it is necessary to consider a variety of factors, such as the materials used in calligraphy and the nature of the Chinese written script as well as the esteem in which writing and literacy are held in traditional China.”

Tablettes de Tărtăria

Tablettes de Tărtăria - Trois tablettes d'argile (non cuites à l'origine), découvertes en 1961 à Tărtăria (Roumanie) - Recouvertes de signes que l'on pense être des symboles de la culture Vinča, leur datation controversée (5300 av.

What is vision? How to define it? From the Egyptian Udjat to the Turkish Nazar, from the Indian third eye (bindi) to the Mayan strabismus, how have cultures and societies considered the eye? What do we really see? With what consequences? How have sight problems been corrected? How do we consider vision today? the visual environment? How important is this meaning in our relationship to the world? In what way is the image - or not - decisive here? How is our vision changing in the digital age? What consequences can its "increase" have in the perception of the world, of others, of oneself ? (to be completed)

Qu’est-ce que la vision ? Comment la définir ? De l’oudjat égyptien au nazar turc, du troisième œil indien (bindi) au strabisme maya, comment cultures et sociétés ont-elles considéré l’œil ? Que voyons-nous réellement ? Avec quelles conséquences ? Comment a-t-on corrigé les problèmes de vue ? Comment considérons-nous aujourd’hui la vision ? l’environnement visuel ? Quelle importance prend ce sens dans notre relation au monde ? En quoi l’image y est-elle – ou non – décisive ? Comment notre vision se transforme-t-elle à l’ère numérique ? Quelles conséquences peut avoir son « augmentation » dans la perception du monde, des autres, de soi ?... (à compléter)
