The answer to this question is very subjective but alors very broad, as it makes us facing all our emotional scale.
For example, André Malraux’s famous phrase resonates with me: “Art is the shortest path from man to man”. Because there are moments in our lives when words are powerless to connect with our feelings and the energies of society and we turn to the act of creation as the one and only way of expression and communication.
If we go deeper into the notion of contemporary art, we can note these two dimensions:
– Artistic, which affects the aesthetics of each work and our perception according to our own tastes;
– and contemporary, which gives us the mirror effect of the modern society with all its ups and downs and provides us with different vision on what’s happening around us.
Art is also a way of thinking differently, outside of logic and language, which takes us out of the everyday routine and touches our soul.
