Borrowing his title from a book written in 1884 by Edwin A.

Recalling the Orthodox readings of abstraction that prevail in the history of art, their practices touch upon fields as varied as literature, science fiction, the history of science, urbanism or cultures popular and use different methods of scripting forms such as encoding, hybridization or suggestion. Following a first film presented in 2016 at the Regional Museum of Contemporary Art in Sérignan, Flatland / Abstractions narratives # 2 brings together some thirty artists from different generations.
