L'Œuvre de l'art, tome 1 : Immanence et trancendance

By Gérard Genette

L’immanence est définie par le variety d’objet en lequel l’œuvre « consiste », et se distribue ainsi en deux régimes, baptisés depuis Nelson Goodman l’autobiographique et l’allographique. Dans le most efficient, l’objet d’immanence (un tableau, une sculpture, une functionality) est matériel et se manifeste de lui-même. Dans le moment, cet objet (un texte littéraire, une composition musicale, le plan d’un édifice) est idéal, conçu par réduction à partir de ses manifestations physiques : livres, walls, exécutions. l. a. transcendance est définie par les diverses manières dont une œuvre déborde son immanence : lorsqu’elle consiste en plusieurs objets non identiques (œuvres à « types »), lorsqu’elle se manifeste de manière lacunaire (fragments) ou indirecte (copies, reproductions, descriptions) ou lorsqu’elle agit diversement selon les lieux, les époques, les individus, les circonstances : on ne regarde jamais deux fois le même tableau, on ne lit jamais deux fois le même livre. L’œuvre ne se réduit donc pas à son objet d’immanence, parce que son être est inséparable de son motion. L’œuvre d’art est toujours déjà l’œuvre de l’art.
