Between illusion and reality, we enter into the remarkable mind of the surrealist genius. A journey between oneiric world and real life through a selection of 150 out of 3,000 works, which speak the same multimedia language and give meaning to the invisible, touching the chords of the most significant moments of the artist’s excursus: from those of his younger years to the first surrealism of the ‘50s.
A production that saw Florence work side by side with the Succession Magritte of Brussels and its president, Charly Herscovici. The invisible thread linking Florence and Brussels was particularly strung at that time: many trips to Rome and Milan along with the curator Julie Waseige, who followed the work first hand.
“Inside Magritte” is an itinerary where the atmospheres and the subjects of the artist’s paintings are the absolute protagonists; possibly among the most well known images of paintings from the 1900s. During the production phase, ideas flowed effortlessly, encouraged perhaps by the heaps of graphic and artistic cues that surrounded us.
