Topoi, Tropi, Apotropos by Jaco van Schalkwyk




The relationship between art and science, especially mathematics, is at best tenuous, unless one conceives of art as a symbolic language in the same manner that mathematics operates as a system of relational symbols. In his current exhibition Jaco van Schalkwyk, an artist versed in the philosophy of mathematics, introduces us to three new concepts in this regard; topoi, tropi andapotropos, all of which are indicative of the transcendental event: Topoi in the sense of analytical philosophy and the mathematics of appearing, and Tropi and Apotropos in the sense of mystical enquiry.
