I shall begin with Hans Bellmer’s “poupées,” his dismembered pubescent dolls cynically and silently screaming against the superior race of Nazi Germany; André Masson’s ominously bloody, violent, chaotic, sexually loaded works; Yves Tanguy’s non-figurative, alien, organic landscapes and seascapes; Oscar Dominguez’s decalcomania and his violent, cathartic, bloody, visual constructions; Roberto Matta’s synaptic innerscapes charting the human psyche; Joan Miro’s childlike creative energy and magical realism.
I shall follow with Frida Kahlo’s personal surrealism, digging deep in the reality of her own experience; Max Ernst’s experimental techniques fulfilling his fascination with magic and metamorphosis; Victor Brauner’s hypnotic transcendental totemic visions; Picasso’s and Giacometti’s playful surrealist iconic flirts. And last, but not least, I shall unravel for you Salvador Dali’s flamboyant, Freudian, sexual, mesmerizing, iconoclastic, critical paranoia; without forgetting the glorious art of cinema, the surrealist art par excellence, with clips from Luis Bunuel, Dali, and Jean Cocteau’s surrealist movies. I invite you to a fearless plunge into the deepest, mysterious terra incognita of our human psyche.
