Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus

open to public
Organizer: Freud Museum London
Venue: Freud Museum London

Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí are two of the most significant and influential figures of the twentieth century.
Dalí was a passionate admirer of the father of psychoanalysis and finally met him in London on July 19th 1938. This year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of this event. A new exhibition at the Freud Museum will explore the connection between the two men, starting from their one meeting, to which Dalí brought his recently completed painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus.

The painting, on loan from the Tate, will be the central point in the exhibition for an exploration of the extensive influence of Freud on Dalí and on Surrealism. Also considered will be Freud’s own attitude to painting, illuminated by his response to this encounter with Dalí.

Dalí had read The Interpretation of Dreams as an art student in Madrid in the early 1920s. This was, he wrote, “one of the capital discoveries of my life, and I was seized with a real vice of self-interpretation, not only of my dreams but of everything that happened to me.” This passion for self-interpretation took not just visual but also written form. In 1933 Dalí wrote a “psycho-analytical essay”, as he described it, on the famous painting by Jean-François Millet, The Angelus. The essay was eventually published as a book, The Tragic Myth of Millet’s ‘Angelus’. In it, Dalí explores his own obsession with the painting, which he lays out in the form of a Freudian case history.

In 1938, after several attempts, Dalí finally met his hero Freud, newly arrived in London after fleeing from Nazi-occupied Vienna. The meeting was brokered by Stefan Zweig, who was present, together with Dalí’s friend and patron Edward James, who owned The Metamorphosis of Narcissus. Dalí hoped his painting would allow him to engage Freud in a discussion of the psychoanalytical theory of Narcissism and would help him to demonstrate his concept of critical paranoia.

Dali was given permission to sketch Freud during the visit. These drawings, now in the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dalí in Spain, will be on display, and Dali’s long poem with the same title as the painting, The Metamorphosis of Narcissus. There will also be material from the Freud Museum’s archive and collections, shedding light on Freud’s attitude to Dalí and their meeting.

Other themes of the exhibition will include the classical origins of the myth of Narcissus and the place of narcissism in psychoanalytic thinking. Freud’s own collections will play a part. For example, they include a copy of the classical relief Gradiva; Freud’s study of Wilhelm Jensen’s novel Gradiva was the inspiration for some of Dalí’s important paintings and drawings on this theme from the early 1930s.

Through images, including original paintings and drawings, photographs and prints, and documents including letters, manuscripts, books and Freud’s appointment diary, the intense – if somewhat one-sided -relationship between two extraordinary thinkers and creators will be explored.

The exhibition will be curated by the distinguished art historian Dawn Ades, curator of the recent highly successful Dali/Duchamp exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue, and an exciting public programme, which will include lectures and debates on topics including Narcissism, the relationship between art and psychoanalysis through Freud’s writings on Leonardo and Michelangelo, Freud and surrealism, psychoanalysis and classicism, and Lacan’s debt to Dalí’s critical paranoia.

PROJECTIONS: Erotic Cinema

Since the first kiss was documented on film in 1896, erotic cinema has titillated viewers and outraged repressed moralists.
The depiction of sexuality can have a pronounced effect on character development, shaping the direction of a film’s central themes. Sigmund Freud believed that “the behaviour of a human being in sexual matters is often a prototype for the whole of their other modes of reaction in life.” We respond to provocative content that ‘turns us on’; risqué scenes make the heart beat faster and ignite the imagination. Psychoanalysts regard sexuality as the key to understanding how the mind works; “no one who disdains the key will ever be able to unlock the door,” Freud warned.

Eros, the Ancient Greek word for romantic love, is tantamount to the life instinct in psychoanalysis, constituting the pleasures of the flesh, procreation, survival, productivity and the desire to unite with others. Early on, Freud defined erotic impulses as being opposed by the Ego. But later, in Beyond The Pleasure Principle (1920), he placed Eros in contrast to the so-called ‘death wish’: repetition, aggression, a masochistic need to sabotage what we love, and the compulsion to return to an inorganic state (i.e., Thanatos).

The simultaneously binding and clashing forces of sex and death together form an entwined dual system that is the source of all creation. PROJECTIONS: Erotic Cinema is a 6-week course exploring this paradoxical tension in eroticism, tracing its manifestation in moving image, from unbridled passions to destructive urges, via deviant practices, to a more diverse and inclusive representation of romance, culminating in a study of modern technology’s impact on the realm of the senses.

Advance viewing is optional, bespoke montages will be shown during weekly sessions (see filmography below):

PROJECTIONS is psychoanalysis for film interpretation. PROJECTIONS empowers film spectators to express subjective associations they consider to be meaningful. Expertise in psychoanalytic theory is not necessary – the only prerequisite is the desire to enter and inhabit the imaginary world of film, which is itself a psychoanalytic act. MARY WILD, a Freudian cinephile from Montreal, is the creator of PROJECTIONS.

Blue Velvet. David Lynch, USA 1986. Mit Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper.

Weisse Zäune um propere Gärtchen, Vogelgezwitscher, ein Feuerwehrauto fährt, Sicherheit verbreitend, durch die Vorstadt. Das ist die Welt, in der Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) und Sandy (Laura Dern) sich verliebt haben und auf die sie ihre Zukunft bauen. Doch dann findet der junge Mann auf dem Rasen ein abgeschnittenes Ohr, und das lässt den Boden unter ihm einbrechen. Er rutscht in einen Abgrund, wo ganz und gar schräge Begierden ihr Wesen treiben.

Lynchs Klassiker von 1986 handelt von der Ablösung und der sexuellen Erweckung eines jungen Mannes, führt dabei aber vor allem die dunklen – perversen – Aspekte vor, eben die Kehrseite der romantischen Liebe.
Die Kamera von David Lynch setzt das visuell um: Einmal droht sie im dunklen Gehörhang zu versinken, ein andermal zeigt sie unter der Rasenoberfläche ein Gewimmel von Würmern und Insekten.
Auch an der Oberfläche verschieben sich die Dinge. Jeffrey lernt eine neue, im Gegensatz zur blonden Sandy dunkelhaarige und sinnliche Frau kennen (Isabella Rossellini). Sie ihrerseits wird drangsaliert von Frank (Dennis Hopper), der mit Gewalt und Unberechenbarkeit über eine verborgene Zone der Stadt herrscht.

Nach einer gemeinsamen Visionierung am Freitagabend werden wir am folgenden Nachmittag den Film anhand von ausgewählten Szenen analysieren.

The 4th Italian Psychoanalytic Dialogues Conference in Rome will make a contribution to the topic of the “Exploration of the Self”, summoning three experts from the fields of neuroscience and psychoanalysis. They are invited to share their points of view in order to bridge different disciplines involved in the attempts to define one of the most complex, elusive and intriguing concepts: the Self. Vilayanur Ramachandran, (S.Diego University, USA), a world-famous neuroscientist who is known for his pivotal experiments about self-perception, will explore the interface between neurosensoriality and the building of the Self. George Northoff (Ottawa University, Canada) will focus on the neural basis of the Self as explored through his work using neuroimaging studies. His work about the perception of space and time related to the sense of Self has brought in the new concept of neuropsychodynamic psychopathology. Mario Rossi Monti (Università di Urbino, Italia/ Società Psicoanalitica Italiana) will offer a psychodynamic overview of the development of the Self according to a psychoanalytic and phenomenological approach in the frame of postmodern cultural transformations: from the “Protean Self “ of Turkle to the borderline identity diffusion. During the Sunday session, leading exponents of different therapeutic approaches will join the discussion about a clinical case that relates to relevant disturbances of the Self.

PROJECTIONS: Cinematic representations of mental illness

Guy de Maupassant once said, “A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption.” Mental illness is one of the leading causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. Depression and anxiety are reported to be among the main drivers of disability in Western countries.

The cinema is a chronicler of transformation revealing the soul’s sublime dreams; it is also a useful mode of expression for the pain endured by a fragmented mind. Compared to other art forms, the film medium possesses a unique capacity to showcase the complexity of human emotion, and so occupies a privileged position in conveying the subjective experience of psychological disturbance.

In this day course, a selection of films portraying psychiatric diagnoses will be explored, with information provided on the emergence and development of distinct clinical categories including anxiety, depression and psychosis. In addition to in-depth content analysis of visual material, discussions will be held on the role of moving image culture in shaping public perception and social attitudes toward mental disorders.
