Description

“Notating the Cosmology, 1973-2008” reproduces and organises pages torn from Matt Mullican’s own notebooks, accumulated over more than thirty years.

Matt Mullican mimes the retrospective and biographic models, and integrates work notes used for his performances under hypnosis, evoking his imaginary studio. Filled with notations, observations, sketches and reflections on cosmology, his notebooks display modes of perception and formalism characteristic of his work: accumulating, collecting, adapting forms and thought patterns that are “already there”. Thus, pictograms, concepts, are reworked, classified and adapted, according to new modalities.

Borrowing from many moments of discourse and various languages (mathematics, visual, literary, etc.), Matt Mullican elaborates a singular cosmology that invites us to reconsider our ways of constructing the world. Articulated around a half fictional- half real Ego, creating a sort of world parallel to ours; he organises his subject matter according to his own découpage: nature and its evolution, the world of objects, symbolic values, signs and concepts.

Through the concise line, the apparently clear schema, the (false) demonstrative evidence of the diagram, or through philosophical considerations, Mullican immerses us in a cartography- certainly incomplete- but where one senses his encyclopedic mind and metaphysical direction, touching upon essential events, where Death goes side by side with the Destiny of this fictional Ego, where time and logic are turned in upon themselves. Nicolas Feodoroff

Edition of 1000.
