NOV 16 | Universo Surreal - Entre o Delírio e o Absurdo

De 26/11/2016 até 20/01/2017 - EXPOSIÇÃO COLETIVA “UNIVERSO SURREAL - ENTRE O DELÍRIO E O ABSURDO”

Às vésperas do centenário da aparição do termo “surrealismo”, empregado pela primeira vez em 1917 pelo poeta francês Guillaume Apollinaire numa referência à performance do reconhecido ballet “Parade” - a peça do escritor Jean Cocteau que estreou em maio daquele ano no Théâtre du Châtelet, em Paris, e que contava com figurinos e cenários de Pablo Picasso -, e diante de um contexto tão “surreal” quanto a própria definição do movimento artístico escrito por André Breton e personificado na figura de Salvador Dali, a Wozen subverte a realidade e recorre ao onírico, ao lisérgico e ao inconsciente para dar vida a sua nova exposição: a coletiva “UNIVERSO SURREAL, aberta ao público até 20 de Janeiro de 2017. Trata-se de uma lúdica e libertária viagem pela arte além da lógica e da razão - entre o delírio e o absurdo.

The centenary of the eve of the appearance of the term "surrealism", first used by the French poet Guillaume Apollinaire in 1917 to describe the performance of the recognized ballet "Parade" - piece of the writer Jean Cocteau which debuted in May of that year at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, had costumes and scenarios made by Pablo Picasso - and it´s in a context as "surreal" as the very definition of art movement writen by André Breton and embodied in figure of Salvador Dali, that Wozen subverts reality and resorts to dream, to the lysergic and the unconscious to give life to our new exhibition: the collective SURREAL UNIVERSE, open to the public until 20 of January of 2017. This is a fun and liberating journey through art beyond logic and reason - between delirium and absurdity. Join us!

 

The aim of the exhibition, more than gather work beyond logic and reason, is scrutinizing the relationship between fantasy and reality, and generally revere the appearance of the term surrealism - recall the great achievement of the ballet "Parade" and therefore , the touch of Picasso in what came to be consolidated as a subversive artistic and literary movement. In this case, the main purpose is to escape from the conventional model of presentation and lead the public to a new dimension, a new definition of reality - literally a surreal universe, be it realistic or abstract. Including drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations, the idea is to enter the scenic aspect of the theater and get a more immersive experience in which the audience can appear more like a member of this imagery in common than as a mere spectator. That is, it is a challenging show and, above all, open to challenges.
