Mysticism and Logic
The space, frescoed by Sol LeWitt's wall drawings, hosts site-specific projects by international artists who are invited to deal with this intimate and memory-rich venue. Mysticism and Logic evokes the famous Bertrand Russell essay, in which he reflects on the synthesis of opposites in the life of man. This is a concept which is also dear to the two artists who will be present in the chapel. Sol LeWitt, in one of his famous Sentences on Conceptual Art, wrote: "Irrational thoughts should be followed in an absolute and logical way" and Ethan Cook, who also reflected this idea in his work in similar terms: ''I see my pieces as equations or propositions in which both logical and emotive events''.
Mystique, for both artists, therefore becomes a vehicle that can be processed by logic.
