Where has that magic gone? The mystery of the cosmos, of nature and living things? Meaning was given to unexplained phenomena using fanciful interpretation and the elaboration of mythologies, populating the heavens with divine creatures and the earth with fearsome monsters. We have replaced magic with images. And in the end, this double reversal deprives us of imagination. When everything is shown, we no longer see anything.
We wish to see nothing, because it is too ugly. Ugliness could eventually take over the world! Where, then does magic hide? To hell with beliefs from a former time, relayed by the enterprise of religion, and its procession of obscurantists! And science! As well as technique!
For us the delights of immanence! But we miss those magical worlds! We want the beyond, transcendence, phantoms and unicorns! We need miracles! So then, Art is here.
An attempt to re-enchant : that is the project. To tell the world as it is not.
