Surrealism, it’s me!

Surrealism, it’s me!

That’s how Salvador Dali answered to journalist question how he explain this art way. There he was true. Dali was the most consequent surrealism creator both in his works – in painting, in graphic, in jewelry, in movies, in performances, and in his lifestyle.

You can adore Dali, admire his works, you cannot understand him, be in dread about his scenes and in disgust turn away.

He – the most expensive artist in XX century, the choosiest bohemian, insane and genial.

So be it, when you are in Spain, Catalonia, you could visit Dali’s theatre-museum, in his birthplace – Figueroa. Entrance ticket 10EURO.

In this provincial town, which has acquired attention, just thanks to this artist, who was born in 1904 year 11 May – Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali. Near the museum is a church, where Dali has christened by hard Catholicism traditions.

Theatre – museum is appropriate name. When you step over the threshold, each takes a part in absurd game, where in reality not connecting is connected, nightmares comes in daylight, sexual inferiority complexes are raised on pedestal.

Life of Dali was like a theatre, performance, endless subconsciousness quotation. Him, to be more exact them – Dali and his muse Gala – needed scandal.

He – asthenic young man from family with Catholic traditions, Spanish poets Federico Gorsy Lurk paramour, rich artist, who can afford to paint with liquid gold, can afford to pay 20 000 dollars’ worth night for his muse with new lover in Romeo and Juliet historical bed in Verona.

She – Russian emigrant ElenaDjakonova–Devulina, franche poets Pole Eliare’s wife, 10 years older than Dali, unable to give a birth to child, waster and many lover finansial supporter. She, who was  layed in the grave in red Christian Dior dress. She – muse, inspirer, Dalis disaster and rescue.

Where the geniality of Dali hides?

In his “Diary of Genius” (Jumava, 1999) he explains with original method: “Each in whole world, especially in America, wants to know the secret method, with which help here and here is the success. This method really exists. This method calls “paranoidal critical method”. There are already 30 years, since I invented it, and I use it, although on what it leans on. At all, talk is about the most delirious thing and systematization of the strictest matter, so that my obsessed dangerous ideas became much creative. This method works just with one rule, that you have godlike origin soft motor, some live bullet, some Gala – but she is one and only in whole world.”

I am fascinated exactly Dali’s playing with viewer, art receiver. What really you see? They are lips, or red, soft sofa? Are they nostrils, but maybe it is fireplace with live coals? You never know, that they’re steps, but maybe you walk on popular actress double chins wrinkles? You want to know what is going on in this actress head? – Please!

When you’re walking in this museum, accidentally you remember something from Freud – dreams, nightmares, sublimation of propensity, image of collage, which are made by subconsciousness. Known impression in artists work obviously has been left from Dali’s meeting with Freud too.

By the way, in thoughts, when you go to Freud’s native country, in Vine are some Dali’s original works – Palais Surreal – Josefspaltz 5. This place is found when you go in direction from Staatsoper, along by Nationalbibliotek, near Hofburg.

In Vine, I have bought some good books about Dali with many his work reproductions. To interests I can advise Frank Weyers „Salvador Dali. Leben und Werk.” (Koln) – Artists life story, biographical news with opposite facts from socialpolitical situation in Europe, reproductions. Full Dalis work summary second volume Robert Descharne, Gilles Neret „Salvador Dali.Gemalde.” (Taschen, Koln, 2004)

Everywhere in Figueroa’s theatre – museum is the feeling that Dali is here. Sometimes there’s a feeling that artist himself somewhere from mansard looks to visitors with known smirk on his lips. But his life shortness is confirmed - in museum basement there is Dalis burial and memorial plaque.

Mistakes practically always are saint in their nature. Never try to correct them. Do the opposite: don’t justify them, know them till the end. After then you can eulogize them.” (Salvador Dali. The diary of genius.)
