PSYCHEDELIQUE Exhibition ┃2021
And what if we let ourselves be grabbed by a breath of freedom?
The Secret Gallery becomes the epicenter of audacity and rebellion, by offering a spatial odyssey in the euphoria of the 60s and the 70s. Five years after the passing of the genius David Bowie, it is in this overwhelming joy that The Secret Gallery wants to pay tribute to his talent. The space is dressed in pink and lemon yellow in order to welcome four prints by Brian Duffy showing the aesthetically revolution inaugurated by Bowie. Signed, numbered and initially presented at the Victoria Albert Museum in London, those pictures give the tone to the hypnotic parade and they mix with the work of all the ones who made rock and roll iconic. Miguel Chevalier, Ivan Picelv, Bern Stern, Andy Warhol, Nikkie de Saint Phalle, Gunter Fruhtrunk, Yvaral, Di Rosa, Julio Le Parc, Agam, the mediums change without complex, our retinas contemplate, and the hanging of the pieces is electric.
Both of those decades are crucial for Reda Amalou’s vision who bring in this collection, that has nothing to envy to the 60s euphoria, all his teenage years in London. Colored consoles, orange sofas, white tartan seats, chromed tables, more than ever he revisits the classics of pop, in a mix between comfort and asserted anticonformism. The free spirit of the Secret Gallery was needed in order to give a new drive to this profusion of desires, colors and creative madness.
An immersive exhibition, a hanging moment and a chorus to repeat, more than ever: You can be heroes, just for one day.
