Espace Dalì, Paris

In 1939, Dalí published the “Declaration of Independence of the Imagination and the Rights of Man to His Own Madness” in response to censorship. Consequently, he used his freedom of expression, combining ideas with spontaneous images, to instill his artworks with a unique imaginative power. Espace Dalí has given free rein to Joann Sfar, one of today’s most talented storytellers, famous for his comic book, “The Rabbi’s Cat” and his film, “Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life”, to imagine the scenario for an artistic encounter.

“Carbon and Velvet” explores the artistic-documentary vision and aesthetic revision of traditional attire by Cristóbal Balenciaga, in his Haute Couture creations, and by Ortiz Echagüe in his photographic portraits of traditional Spain. The work of these two artists converses to offer interpretations of a reality, that of the traditional costume, which ceased to exist as far back as the early decades of the 20th century and to which both, through works of undeniable artistic quality, lend validity and a timeless quality.
