Limits, Edges And Frontiers

Limits, Edges And Frontiers

These three terms, closely related but each with their own meaning, allow us to think about space.To produce and organise space, to define it as a place.These terms each open up individually or in combination with each other a very rich semantic field, and are used to advantage by all sciences (including mathematics) for which they provide fertile avenues for reflection.

These terms designate a separation between spaces, thus creating distinct places.Whether they are considered as closed spaces, introspective or porous, there is contact with what is different or even the unknown.The proximity of the definite and the indefinite remains a recurring theme in the history of art and some of the works shown question the structure of the passage between two worlds: the outside world and our own world.

This exhibition aims to be an exploration of places.To understand and describe them, it can be helpful to make use of topology by employing, to paraphrase the philosopher Michel Serres, the notions of closed (in), open (outside), intervals (between), orientation and direction (towards, in front of, behind), extension (among), proximity and connection (near, on, against).
