Languages of publication
The present article attempts to look at space from the vantage point of neobaroque theory. Its aim is to investigate how such Baroque strategies as framing and de-framing transform surface into space staged within the subject. It also analyzes how breaking the frame of representation may be seen as an ontological act dependent on the body and desire, the act allowing for the aestheticization of reality.
Celem artykułu jest spojrzenie na przestrzeń przez pryzmat teorii neobaroku. Artykuł próbuje pokazać, jak barokowe strategie obramowywania i przełamywania ram przekształcają płaszczyznę w przestrzeń usytuowaną wewnątrz podmiotu. Artykuł analizuje również sposób, w jaki przełamywanie ram reprezentacji może być postrzegane jako akt ontologiczny uzależniony od ciała i pożądania, akt, dzięki któremu możliwa staje się estetyzacja rzeczywistości.
