Surrealist Gastronomy by Salvador Dali

Dali’s Statement on Surrealist Gastronomy: 

Films will be completely out in five years. Out, firstly, because nothing good has ever come out of them, except- perhaps – “Le Chien Andalou” which I made and which could have given to those who would have liked to work a feeling of continuity. Then, and above all, because now exists the “video-cassette” which I just received as a gift from Mr. Rosenberg. Just as squires, at some point, make their own psudeo-artistic shit and will no longer require film studios, for it is unthinkable, that in order to produce shit one would have to go through film studios. People will produce their shit every morning without a script, without a photographer, without anything. With video-cassettes, the world will become a monumental garbage dump, where everyone will be able to relieve oneself at ease without any deed to go to the movies. 

Information About the suite

Published in 1971 by Transworld Art, the print portfolio, Memories of Surrealism, is a fresh and lively distillation of the art of Salvador Dali. Working on an intimate scale, Dali here revisits the major themes and motifs of his art in a remarkably restrained, even analytical mood, and the happy result is a series of sketchbook-style studies that, even after the passage of forty-plus years, look like they could have been produced yesterday.

The understanding is that each of the twelve color prints in the portfolio is an etching on a photolithograph of an original mixed-media work that Dali created with gouache and collage on paper. The prints were all signed by Dali in pencil and were issued unbound in a presentation case along with some descriptive text plates, and all etching plates and lithographic stones were destroyed before the portfolio was released to impose a hard limit on the edition.
