Picasso & Prehistory… The “Effect” Picasso… titles… titles of the exhibitions planned for 2023.
The truth is, it is hard to ignore Picasso and a visit to the Picasso Museum in Paris would make one realize the immense force and prolificity of this communist, owner of at least one castle.
So how would A HOUSE FOR PABLO PICASSO look like ?
First, perhaps, we should ask: HOW WOULD A PICASSO ARCHITECT be ?
Let’s imagine a PICASSO ARCHITECT.
Let’s imagine that architect would be me / us.
And let’s begin to imagine architectures, among them, A HOUSE.
A HOUSE FOR PABLO PICASSO.
Of course there were, and maybe still are, protean architects. But specifically a PICASSO ARCHITECT there isn’t. Yet.
A HOUSE DEDICATED TO PEACE ? Maybe, if we consider the deadly war now and Picasso’s white pigeon, symbol of peace.
A HOUSE FOR A MINOTAUR ? Most surely, since Picasso was himself a minotaur.
The Picasso universe is vast… the sources of inspiration, vast.
Our imagination, imagining a Picasso House, should be vast too.
Can we do it ?
It won’t be easy.
How to be an architect OF THIS VASTNESS ?
HOW TO HANDLE THE WHOLE FIELD OF HUMAN EXISTENCE, thus ?
And how to be children-like ? We remember that Picasso said that he learned to paint like Raphael in four years and to paint like a child in a lifetime.
LET’S BE CHILDREN.
LET’S DESCEND WITHIN OURSELVES to that level undisturbed by everything we learned.
Can we do it ?
DESIGN A HOUSE FOR PABLO PICASSO!
A HOUSE FOR THE QUINTESSENTIAL ARTIST OF THE 20TH CENTURY.
Now that there are 50 years since his death.
Even the gods, it seems, die…
