Il surrealismo di Salvador Dalì

Salvador Dalì

From 05/06/2010 To 01/08/2010

For the first time in its history Palma Art Gallery presents one of the most prestigious collections currently public to the contemporary art market. In collaboration with the Qu'Art, John Heinz and the Dali Foundation, over the next three months you can visit Palm Art Gallery and see a collection of 8 unique sculptures by the great Salvador Dali. A collection of sculptures that perfectly illustrates the insatiable creative spirit of Dali and his absolute mastery of passing from one object to another - be it an invention, a drawing, a painting or a sculpture. The Qu art collection includes two extraordinary angels (one surreal and the other cubist), a Twisted Christ, an Ornithological head of Venus, a Zootrope model, an object called “Sculptural Sublime Moment”, by Dali himself and a quirky bedside table and the wacky head of Beethoven. Each sculpture, as well as being unique, is synonymous with sophistication for both his physical appearance and for its iconographic significance. The sculptures relate to subjects and questions that fascinated Dalí: science, mathematics, religion, spirit, dreams, the subconscious, surrealism and fetishism. All the sculptures on show were created between 1960 and 1980. This is a rare opportunity for the province of Piacenza and Parma, and for the whole of northern Italy. The collection that was presented to the public for the first time in 2007 at the Museum of Byzantine and Christian Art in Athens, will be exhibited for three months at Palma Arte Gallery.
