The Culture of the Object: Where the Mind Meets the Soulmate
Près de toi, comme côtoyant Un paysage aux ondes invisibles
que seule l’âme éprouve Chaque chose y est selon le rythme Traversé d’un soleil tardif
mais ardent, mais serein
À l’Orient de tout
TLmag–True Living of Art & Design celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2023. The journey of this magazine, which was born in 2008, has stamped its identity within an international community of readers. Serving as a bridge between contemporary fine arts and applied arts, the magazine has evolved with its time while projecting a forward-looking perspective on new modes of creation and thought. Designed as a book in motion with a recurring theme that is both cur- rent and avant-garde, TLmag has explored over the years a territory that has been increasingly cultivated by thinkers, creators, and art and design enthusiasts—the realm of collectible art as a land of experimentation and excellence in craftsman- ship. Like an archaeological dig, with hand and mind in search of nuggets of gold and a genealogy of being, TLmag has proven to be a source of incredible shared knowledge and discoveries. By weaving an ever more creative, innovative, and global network, TLmag has naturally found its place, leaving an indelible trace, marked by a quarterly publication at first, then biannual, until settling into its annual cruising rhythm in tune with the increasingly digital age. By encompassing in its reading and writing themes the rituals and customs of our ever-changing society, between war and peace, climate and energy crises, TLmag fits into an open and resolutely humanistic landscape where creation remains the lifeblood of a living body. “The sap and thought,” (Pensieri e linfa) to paraphrase the Italian artist Giuseppe Penone, are at the core of these pages, where words free the object from its permanence to let it take its place in the heart of our life.
