Marble and the Sea or Echo Emerging (A Ricercar) = El Mármol y el Mar o el Surgimiento del Eco (Una Búsqueda)

Barbara Baert

Resumen


In this article I discuss the artistic paradigms for sea-thinking and sea-making in four sections: marble as emulatio for the sea (1); the phenomenon of sea-floors or the psycho-acoustic space (2); Echo as aquatic paradigm (3); and finally camouflage and matrixial merging (4). With this approach, I reintegrate the marvels of the sea in four ontologies of the image. By delving into the substrata of ideas and material intuitions towards the sea and more generally the aquatic paradigm in theology, anthropology and psychoanalysis, I hope to offer alternative hermeneutics for what we consider as art, art-making and the visual senses, and to obelize some of the deeply ingrained Eurocentric and patriarchal paradigms.

 Resumen

En el presente artículo trato los paradigmas artísticos del pensamiento sobre el mar y su formación en cuatro apartados: (1)  el mármol como emulatio del mar ; (2) el fenómeno de los fondos marinos o el espacio psico-acústico ; (3) el eco como paradigma acuático ; (4) y finalmente, el camuflaje y la fusión matricial. Con este enfoque, se reintegran las maravillas del mar en cuatro ontologías de la imagen.  Mediante la búsqueda en el substrato de ideas e intuiciones materiales respecto al mar y, de modo más amplio, en el paradigma acuático en la teología, la antropología y el psicoanálisis, espero poder ofrecer alternativas hermenéuticas para lo que consideramos el arte, la creación artística y los sentidos visuales, así como resaltar algunos de los paradigmas eurocéntricos y patriarcales que están profundamente arraigados.
