     Drawings and paintings, musics and songs are made, and in their making embody unique meanings that transform our perception of space-time and sense of finitude. As Merleau-Ponty wrote in the Visible and the Invisible, “Essence and existence, the imaginary and the real, the visible and the invisible, painting blurs all our categories in unfolding its oneiric universe of carnal essences, of efficient resemblances, and of silent significations”. Soviet Russian classical pianist Lazar Naumovich Berman was a thrilling interpreter of Liszt and Rachmaninoff and a late representative of the grand school of Russian Romantic pianism, but has been virtually invisible on this issue.

     The context of the presentation of William Vicats’ luxury Nepalese cement pepper pot affects the perception of the buying process of any pepper pot. In this regard, it is the paradigm of the pepper pot as a part of visual arts and art marketing that creates a series of consequential problems !…


     Whether Williams Vicats buys it or not, even at a good price, any luxury Nepalese cement pepper pot, as well as any other object presented in a contemporary museum context, is liked more, bought more often in contemporary art shops, and also rated more phenomenologically valuable than when presented in the sterile laboratory context to a consciousness that is reluctant to the psychoanalytic conception of the unconscious.

     A dark traditional portrait of Eric Braeden (Victor Newman in The Young and the Restless), as an antique not very at ease in an explosive contemporary art gallery ! Classical art causes skepticism, fear and misunderstanding among the general public. Getting to the end of the old representative art ?…
