Espace 117: Frissons/Shivers

21 × 28 × 1 cm
128 pp
Contemporary Art, Reviews, Interview, Criticism

Fall 2017.

Aseman Sabet proposed and codirected this theme issue of ESPACE no. 117, which explores the affective dimension in the field of art. Whether it is reflections on works that address the shiver and its conceptual adaption, or theoretical reflections on the aesthetic reception at the intersection of sensorial, affective and intellectual concerns, the essays in this issue are intended to reintroduce the notion of emotions into the understanding of contemporary practices. The articles of Ray Cronin, Florian Gaité, Maria Golovteeva, Aseman Sabet, Dominique Sirois-Rouleau, Anne-Lou Vicente and an interview with Sophie Jodoin show that current art is a particularly fertile area for analyzing the theme of the shiver and all that comes with it, from the point of view of both the object and the subject. It remains to be seen to what point artistic emotions, those that cause us to shiver, revive our sensory awareness of being in the world. How does the viewer, removed from all aesthetic contemplation, develop an imagination, through immersive experiences, capable of reaffirming our presence in the world?

This issue of ESPACE art actuel no. 117 also is an occasion to present articles on the 57th Venice Biennale and the 8th Manif d’art – The Quebec City Biennial in the “Events” section. It coincides as well with the 30th anniversary of the magazine.
