The painting Man with His Head Full of Clouds is the metaphorical work that opens the exhibition. In this case, a man integrated into the landscape and into the sky. A man-window who offers us an opening to the exterior, combining the subconscious with a more tangible reality. The 12 oil paintings by Dalí in this show enable us to engage with the "enigmatic elements" and the landscapes which make his works so unique, arousing curiosity and attraction. These landscapes provoke. They allow us to talk about apparatus, perspectives, and elongated shadows, of the concepts of visible-invisible, cypresses, fetishist Surrealist objects, spectres and ghosts, of Freud and psychoanalysis, of perception and the ability to look. About open readings with multiple meanings, which always require the participation and the gaze of the spectator to set them off. We are talking, in short, of the Surrealism of Salvador Dalí, a surrealism which extends throughout his artistic career and which we wish to highlight with Poetry of America, an eclectic, classic, and surrealist work.
The Dalí Museums will open on 27th March. We look forward to welcome you!
