Erarta Museum presents an exhibition of the French artist Philippe Shangti - a collection of exquisite sensations and sensual joys designed to free the unconscious
- Pictures-posters, reminiscent of individual scenes from a large performance
- Sensuality as a natural human habitat
- Author representing the Principality of Andorra at the 58th Venice Biennale
The exposition at the Erarta Museum unites 35 works by Philip Shangti. They can hardly be called staged photographs - the artist acts rather as a director of a large performance, from which individual scenes end up on posters.
In every plot that the author undertakes, he, like a magician in a circus, brings in many sensations atypical for this plot - so that our sensuality would extract them on its own, adding them later into an unexpected scale. For example, the work of Luxury Corrida invites the viewer to forget about the imaginary superiority of man over animals: such triumphant dreams must be dreamed by bulls on the eve of a bullfight. The work of Luxury Pollution Car illustrates the textbook interpretation of the desire of individual men to acquire a supercar as a veiled desire to get all the women of the world.
The work Crazy Waitress - a self-portrait of the artist - deserves special attention. There is everything that many can only dream of: money, women and champagne by the river; a sensual atmosphere of luxury and a captivating invitation to take everything from life. However, this plot is not at all about striving for unrestrained carnal pleasures: the author, although he is in the spatial center of the picture, is not the semantic center of what is happening, but rather is thrown into it for a short time. Instead of lying imposingly in a leather chair, he squatted down, ready at any moment, like a spring, to unbend and jump out of the maelstrom of women and things - the large clock in the background only enhances this feeling. This is not an orgy, but another journey in the company of Shangti - this time to the world of those whose life, in the generally accepted scale of values, has gone right."Crawl under their skin, - as if Shangti invites us, - stay in the skin of the chosen ones at least a little."
The luxury of liberation is indeed the lot of the elite. It takes courage to allow yourself to look at someone else’s nakedness and, throwing off the templates, in a sense to be naked yourself. Each visitor of the exhibition in Erarta has to do this way - freeing his own unconscious, allowing himself to show emotions without censorship. The works of Philip Shangti will be a great help for this kind of training. A subtle connoisseur and connoisseur of sensual pleasures, the author offers us a rich collection of exquisite sensations and invites us to enjoy their tasting with him at the "Taste of the Sensual" exhibition.
