Ethnopassion Mostra

LUGANO.- From 28 May to 23 August, the Galleria Gottardo in Lugano will be holding the world's first exhibition of the ethnic artworks collected by one of the twentieth century's greatest art patrons: Peggy Guggenheim. The idea behind the exhibition is to display the "exotic objects" that embellished the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni during the collector's lifetime. Since her death, they have been carefully restored and examined by scientific researchers. The restoration project was jointly launched by Galleria Gottardo, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and the Museum of Cultures in Lugano with the aim of rediscovering the specific meaning of each object in itself and in the context in which it was purchased.

Peggy Guggenheim's passion for ethnic art dated back to the period of her tempestuous relationship with Max Ernst, who was a keen collector of this kind of art. When their relationship broke down in 1943, the artist left with all the works in his collection. After settling permanently in Venice and opening her collection to the general public, Peggy rekindled her interest in ethnic art, and, from 1959, she began to acquire works and exhibit them in her home, mixing them with contemporary artworks as she felt inclined. She developed a genuine passion, an involuntary, unconscious attraction for these objects, which was rooted in purelyphenomenal interest: she never felt a great need to find out more about their meaning and value. She appreciated their decorative nature, using them as a means of enhancing her interior design and keeping up with the latest fashions.Based on photographs from the period and the scarce information available on the subject, it is thought that her private collection consisted of around 50 artworks, mainly from Africa and Oceania; 35 of these remained in the estate of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, where they have been conserved in the museum’s art storage.The exotic artefacts had always been considered valuable as part of Peggy's collection, but with uncertainty about the intrinsic value of the items in question when examined outside the classical canons of conventionally understood art in the West.One of the aims of the “Ethnopassion” exhibition is to transform this view, giving these objects not just the value that they have in the intellectual context that fanned Peggy Guggenheim's interest for ethnic art, but also an anthropological value arising from the study of the objects and their links with various periods and cultures.The mandate for the scientific analysis of the collection was given to the Museum of Cultures of the City of Lugano, under the direction of Francesco Paolo Campione. Thanks to him and his staff, in-depth analysis, including the accurate restoration of the objects, the creation of frames and supports, philological research and scientific classification of the works, visitors to the Galleria Gottardo can admire these artworks in their new found splendour and let their imaginations wander in the magical atmosphere that reigned in Peggy Guggenheim's palace on the banks of Venice’s Canal Grande, where art, style, passion and creativity met.The exhibition is curated by Franco Rogantini, Director of Galleria Gottardo and by Philip Rylands, Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.

Collage: Multimedia - "Integrated Thought"

For Andre: "Gesamtkunstwerk/Pink Floyd-"The writing is on the wall "
Music: "La Coutte D'Or-From St. Germain (Tourist) - Track 8
Guest: Ernest Rangun
Composer: Zudovic Navanne
Background: Wagner's Parsifal.

"The characteristic mark of Wagner's thought in its astounding unity, a unity of things far removed in time, and a gathering together of the heterogeneous under a single point of view.
In general too, this is perhaps the most prominent quality of artistic thought founded on observation and intuition. Of any dialectic process (in the sense of Hegel), every conception evolving necessarily into its opposite, the two then combining to a new, synthetic conception, and son on, there is here no trace; it is al organic growth - growth by "introssusception" in which the new elements do not destroy the old ones, but penetrate and expand them. In this way does the oak grow from a seed-germ to the "Monarch of the Forest": in this way grew Wagner's thoughts."

Term: "Gesamtkunstwerk" (total/integrated or complete Artwork) - German term attributed to the German opera composer Richard Wagner.

Multimedia: "Dali in Africa"

http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/yourgallery/artist_profile/a/90189.html

copyright MRust 2008

"There is no dominant painting style in Surrealism. Considered from the point of view of technique it exhibited three main tendencies. The first tendency (which proved in the short term to be the most innovatory in terms of physical working methods) was that of discovering imagery by mechanical techniques where chance was exploited. The purpose was to 'irritate' the vision, to stimulate the imagination and to force inspiration.

Andre Breton's phrase 'pure psychic automatism' was intended to apply to the process of writing and Breton even gave practical hints on how to do it. In 1930 he published his second Manifeste du surréalisme in which he defined 'surreality' as the reconciliation of the reality of dreams with the reality of everyday life into a higher synthesis.
Underlying the interest in automatism and dream lay the Surrealist notion of what was called 'objective chance'. They believed that the existence of coincidences (events for which there were no rational explanations) was evidence and that true reality was not ordered or logical. Access to reality could only be gained through the unconscious mind.

Multimedia: "Change through Automatic drawing" - "Introspective thought"

Stylistic Analysis.

Automatic drawing (distinguished from drawn expression of mediums) was developed by the surrealists, as a means of expressing the subconscious. In automatic drawing, the hand is allowed to move 'randomly' across the paper. In applying chance and accident to mark-making, drawing is to a large extent freed of rational control. Hence the drawing produced may be attributed in part to the subconscious and may reveal something of the psyche, which would otherwise be repressed. Examples of automatic drawing were produced by mediums and practitioners of the psychic arts. It was though by some Spiritualists to be a spirit control that was producing the drawing whilst physically taking control of the mediums body.

"In these days it is important for an artist to grasp that the logical exploratory voyage of reason is the finest process of the mind. Every other activity is a form of regression...thus the much-vaunted "night mind"; the subconscious world of myth and nostalgia, the child, the imagination and instinctual drives, though richer, stronger and more powerful than the world of reason...never the less owes its strength to our falling back on all that is primitive and infantile; it is an act of cowardice to the God in Man."
Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave, 1944.


"Free Association" - technique of continuously relating anything which comes into the mind - the technique assumes that all memories are arranged in a single associative network, and that sooner or later the subject will stumble across the crucial memory.
