The approach of the work
The position occupied in the art by the spectator, real or virtual, has several dimensions, between the incitement of the artist, the appropriation of the work and the development of a culture, individual or collective, for example the formation of an estate.
Indeed, art is designed by the artist, but also by the spectator who, with his unique perception, gives the work a character to rediscover permanently. Public justifies art in part, makes it existing and gives its sense ; the work of art is made to be contemplated.
The viewer is active in reducing the distance between him and the work, even if he may never fully meet it. In other words, the spectator must admit that he can’t know the essence of art, as conceived by Platon in the Fifth century BC.
Beyond the feelings, the appreciation of works of art implements the will, the knowledge gained, the dependence of contexts. Otherwise, the problem of relativism compels the spectator to understand more or less certain works.
The approach of the spectator in front of the work of art emphasizes two processes : the appeal to senses, the sensory action, that is to say seeing, hearing, etc. : and the other process or trend adds to the sensoriality the deliberate attention in front of the artwork, the whole should bring to reflection.
In this second approach, intelligence, comprehension, sensibility and judgment are involved, all those things that are different depending on people. Thus, the viewer can feel, besides the aesthetic pleasure, disgust or ambiguity; he will be led to wonder not only about the work of art itself, that is to say the medium chosen by the artist, the context of creation etc., but also about what the artwork evokes for him in relation to what he previously felt or in relation to his theoretical knowledge. This will then lead him to arise problems in connection with this artwork, and more generally regarding art.
