Artistic transformation of pierre teilhard de chardin’s ideology in anatoli kim’s works

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The study explores worldview and artistic reflection of Teilhard de Chardin’s work that influenced the ideas of the third-generation Russian Korean artist Anatoli Kim. The evidence that Anatoli Kim was immersed in the ideas of the French theologian and paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin is revealed not only through the mentioning of his name and writings, but also on a deeper level such as through thematic adaptation in Anatoli Kim’s works. Accordingly, this study observes the aspect of concepts such as “biosphere,” “noosphere,” and “omega point,” which are based on the evolutionary biology of Teilhard, being reflected on the natural philosophy of Anatoli Kim’s works. Such attempts to analyze the aspects of Teilhard’s theories or perspectives being embraced in the worldview of Anatoli Kim and artistically projected in his works can be a sig-nificant case study on the convergence of science, theology, and philosophy into cultural art.
