Professeur invité à l’EHESS

28 Mai 2024.  The Body as an Oxymoron

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Giovanni Careri, 10h-13h, salle Benjamin INHA, 2 rue Vivienne

This seminar will focus on the aesthetic perception of the body in baroque art theory as the “locus” of contradictory, yet concomitant features and effects. It will serve as an introduction to the cycle of four seminars. Emphasis will lie on the opposition flatness-relief, horror-pleasure, and softness-vigor through the analysis of works by Cornelis van Haarlem, Hendrick Goltzius, and the ancient Laocöon as seen by the sculptors of the French Académie de peinture et sculpture

3 juin 2024 Body, Self-Preservation, and the Humor

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Pierre Antoine Fabre, 13h, salle Peiresc, INHA, 2 rue Vivienne

This seminar will examine the body as a medical construct, and will center on the Galenic theory of the four humors or temperaments. The discussion will pivot about a painting by the Flemish artist Louis Finson, The Four Elements now in the Sarah Blaffer Foundation, Houston. This work will be interpreted in light of the new developments in natural philosophy and medicine. Crucial to the discussion will be the notion of self-preservation advanced in particular by Bernardino Telesio.

4 juin 2024 The Reformed Body

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Giovanni Careri, 10h-13h, salle Benjamin INHA, 2 rue Vivienne

From Giovan Battista Agucchi to Giovan Pietro Bellori, the idea that the Carracci, in particular Annibale, had “reformed” and “resuscitated” art even as it was doomed to decline, has become almost a historical commonplace. But what did the Carracci reform of the body entail in pedagogical terms? What kind of body did they attempt to recover or recreate? And how does this align with the notion of the so-called Carracci classicism? This seminar will center on the foundation of the Carracci academy around 1582, and will examine the Carracci’s production of drawings from life and their practical and theoretical implications.

10 juin 2024.  Black Beauty as a Paradox

Dans le cadre du séminaire du Collectif Renaissance, 18h-20h, salle Benjamin, INHA, 2 rue Vivienne

In early modern aesthetics, there was no place for blackness. This seminar will center on two sculptures executed by Nicolas Cordier in 1608–1612 for Cardinal Scipione Borghese: the Moor (now in the Musée du Louvre, Paris) and the so-called Zingarella (still in the Galleria Borghese, Rome). Discussing the links of these two statues with the tradition of lyric poetry, and in particular with Giovan Battista Marino’s concept of novelty, this seminar will show the paradoxical charge of originality that Cordier intended to convey through these two sculptures. Furthermore, these works will be examined in light of other artifacts where blackness and the ancient paradigm of perfection are brought together.
