ACTUALITE

 
 

INTERNET HAS CHANGED FOR EVER THE STATUS OF THE ARTWORK.

CREATIVE COMMUNITIES ARE MAKING THEIR COMEBACK AND ANONYMITY IS NO LONGER A DIRTY WORD. AFTER ALL, HOMER IS ANONYMOUS.

WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SHAKESPEARE EITHER, AND YET THIS LITTLE MAN FROM STRATFORD-UPON-AVON KNOWS MORE THAN US ABOUT ALMOST EVERYTHING.

THE ERA OF THE GREAT "EGO", OF THE GREAT "ME", ENDS BEFORE OUR EYES. IT IS, MOREOVER, VERY BRIEF. BEETHOVEN WAS AWARE OF BEING BEETHOVEN.

YOU ARE STILL AWARE OF BEING YOU. BUT THE PRESIDENT-FOUNDER OF THE TROPICOOL COMPANY HAS ALREADY NO MORE AWARENESS OF BEING HIM.

THE TROPICOOL COMPANY IS A PHILOSOPHICAL ENTERPRISE, AN ARCHIPELAGO OF ARTISTS AND A POST-COLONIZATOR PROJECT INVENTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2014 ON THE PIRATE ISLAND OF SETE, 521 YEARS TO THE DAY AFTER CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS LANDED THE ISLAND HE THEN NAMED MARIE-GALANTE.

THE PRESIDENT-FOUNDER OF THE TROPICOOL COMPANY STATES THAT ART IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST FORMS OF LIFE, BUT ON THE CONDITION THAT THE CREATOR AVOIDS A DOUBLE TRAP : THE ILLUSION OF THE WORK OF ART AND THE TEMPTATION TO TAKE THE ARTIST’S MASK. BOTH PETRIFY US : THE FIRST MAKES A PRISON OUT OF A PASSION, THE SECOND A PROFESSION OUT OF A LIBERTY.

THE FIGURE OF THE ARTIST IS AN INVENTION WHOSE ARCHEOLOGY OF OUR THOUGHT EASILY SHOWS THE RECENT DATE. AND MAYBE THE END SOON. IF THE DISPOSITIONS THAT MADE THE EMERGENCE OF THIS FIGURE POSSIBLE WERE TO DISAPPEAR AS THEY APPEARED THEN WE CAN BET THAT THE ARTIST WOULD FADE, AS AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA, A FACE OF SAND.

THE WORLD OF ART IS CLIVATED BETWEEN MARKET AND ACADEMY BUT, HAPPILY, THERE IS A THIRD WAY : BECOMING ITS OWN SELF-INVENTED INSTITUTION JUST LIKE THE PRESIDENT-FOUNDER DID WITH THE TROPICOOL COMPANY.
