Meeting with Michel TOMBROFF

Zéro dièse existe
Art, mathematics, unsightly

Art and mathematics have maintained an intimate relationship since ancient times, as evidenced by the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Béla Bartók, Bernar Venet, Roman Opalka, Manfred Mohr, Ryoji Ikeda, Hollis Frampton, Shigeru Onishi and many others. We note, however, that since the mid-sixties this relationship has begun to weaken and that a certain distance has established between these two fields of creation. The author takes us to discover the reasons for this bifurcation between art and mathematics in the postmodern era, and identifies a main suspect: infinity. He draws inspiration for this investigation from the thought of the philosopher Alain Badiou, in particular from the concept of unaesthetics, an original connection between art and thought centered on those of being, event, truth, subject and… infinity .

Michel TOMBROFF invites you to a meeting on Wednesday June 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
