Numerous artists worked ont the dream thematic as a way to transgress the art boundaries.

Later, when Freud wrote about dreams as a privileged access to unconscious, artists worked on their inner dialogues and their repressed fantasis.

A fantastic base for inspiration, emotions and creation.

Finally, the visitor accesses Dreams with feminine représentations by Odilon Redon, Auguste Rodin, Félix Vallotton, Salvador Dalí or by Pablo Picasso.

Into the night

As per late XIXth century, symbolist artists painted the night as an introspective journey.

A vision by Victor Hugo is the begining of a journey to dream and fantasy.

Nocturnal landscapes representations by William Degouve de Nuncques and mysterious mists painted by Léon Spilliaert are an introduction to Paul Delvaux'magic.

Marx Ernst symbolises the boundary between dream and reality with his very own adaptation of forests and creatures.

Early XXth century, the birth of psychanalysis and the publication of the surrealism manifesto opens the doors to artists to explore deeply the soul's maze. An adventure they will enjoy very much.



Painting dream allows to unleash subjectivity. Victor Brauner, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí, Man Ray painted their own dreamlike, fantasmatic approach of dreams. Superb paintings that will leave the visitor speechless.

Fantasis

The surrealist mind is infected with diaphanous or carnal feminnine représentations.

Complicated love (Félix Labisse), delicate nudes (Wilhelm Freddie), suggestives photographies by Hans Bellmer and "collages" by Jindrich Styrsky are impacted with Marquis de Sade's erotic philosophy.


Nightmare

Nightmare is the active phase of sleep. the phase that unleashes our demons.

From « sleep to reality » illustrated by Francisco de Goya to impossible visions painted Marcel Berronneau, artists give birth to hideous creatures: terrifying monsters; evil octopuses, ugly snakes, insects... A whole gallery of terrifying creatures.

Daydream is dear to surrealist artists. They joyfully explored and experimented unconscious ,

Sketches by Henri Michaux, photos by Raymond Hains, painting of native Dreams remind the visitor of the chromatic world of Victor Vassarely.

Not-to-be-missed: The Dreamachine (1961) by Brion Gysin. « the only artistic object one can see the eyes closed ». One can stare through shut eyelids at syncopated light ubtil he/she hallucinates.
