In its third year running, the Shrewsbury creative trail is the proud home of not one but three complete Salvador Dali sculptures. The Spanish surrealist, who died in 1989 at the age of 84, preferred to use the term Transformations. His juxtapositions between concept, medium, and object bring a sense of otherworldliness and dream to our everyday lives. His character still lives on in his many creations and the various films he has been in.
His legacy is kept in perfect condition by The Dali Universe, in Switzerland, who receive requests from all over the world to exhibit his work. Shrewsbury in the UK is one of the lucky places to have been selected. The three works will be guarded by CCTV and closely monitored day and night. Not that Shrewsbury is known for troublemakers, it’s just good to be sure.
A 1954 surrealist piano with human legs is one of the sights visitors can see. To fit in with the theme of movement, the trail also will exhibit Homage to Terpsichore and Dalinian Dancer. Chosen to coincide with the 350th anniversary of John Weaver’s birth, the British choreographer and writer is being honoured with this international and multi-disciplined effort.
