ESSENCE / ABSENCE
Pavillion 10 @ The Wrong Biennale
Curated by Matteo Campulla
3D online exhibition hosted by New Art City
In a world where “being” often coincides with our online presence, reality itself becomes a “break” from our virtual life.
The pavilion intends to deepen the binary opposition between essence and absence, starting from the Hegelian concept “The truth of being is the essence” (die Wahrheit des Seins ist das Wesen). Being and nothingness, according to Hegel, really coexist in the becoming which is a continuous passage of the two opposites. Taking up the Spinozian conception according to which “every determination is a negation” (Omnis determinatio est negatio) every characteristic that being assumes occurs with a negation with respect to the totality.
