Abstract

Say the sensitive: say, express, write in painting and, on the other hand, let the painting be said, described. The relationship of art with the logos, or of the image with words, is an old issue, perhaps inexhaustible. The reflection presented here would like to resume these thoughts concerning the saying of art, its logos, its faculty to say what one feels, as well as its potential to be said, even to be somehow described, on the basis of the work of two artists who were hugely concerned with this issue in quite different ways: on the one hand, Paul Klee with his thinking by images, on the other hand, Marcel Duchamp whose art defies its own figuration. As far as semiotics is concerned, there are different ways of saying the sensitive, intertwining at various levels the discourse and what one feels. Plastic semiotics and discursive semiotics may intersect, interfere and reflect one another.
