Experience in detail
The individual exhibits are the result of how the paranoia and mental obsessions, that seized Dali's mind, led the artist to lose his perception of reality. Classical parameters, which in the field of human life lose their consistency, spatial and time deformations, become soft, unlimited, without boundaries or observance of the meaning of reality. The delirium of irrationality is thus embodied in monstrous beings, animals, forms that can be interpreted differently, by wasting anything. The artist's language is not immediately understandable and very often does not even hide the real significant meaning, but it is only the anxiety of overcoming, the compression of contrasting strokes, which seeks form, the way out.
Absolutely unique and surprising, the exhibition includes 15 sculptures of incalculable value from the private collection of the famous Italian art patron Beniamino Levi, who was also a close friend of Salvador Dali. Undoubtedly, the most interesting exhibits include the statue of Space Elephant, Space Venus and Snail and the Angel.
