Summary To coincide with the 2017 Venice Art Biennale, the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the Axel & May Vervoordt Foundation will present their sixth, and final, exhibition: 'Intuition'. Curated by Axel Vervoordt and Daniela Ferretti, Director of the Palazzo Fortuny, and co-curated by Dario Dalla Lana, Davide Daninos and Anne-Sophie Dusselier, the exhibition will explore how intuition has, in some form, shaped art across geographies, cultures and generations. It will bring together historic, modern and contemporary works related to the concept of intuition, dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration.
What is intuition and how does it work? What role does intuition play in an artist's creative process? Described in various circumstances as a subconscious activity, a gut feeling, a sixth sense, or a hunch - intuition is a mysterious process that gives us the ability to know something without proof or evidence. It guides us to act in a certain way without knowing exactly why or how. It's a bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind, between instinct and reason, between perception, logic, and the leap from a question to its answer. Intuition has consistently provoked vast fields of research. Everyone from philosophers, physicists, artists, actors, mathematicians, neuroscientists, musicians, to many others, have tried to offer their understanding of its mysterious processes. A challenging and complex topic, intuition has fascinated and perplexed some of humanity's greatest minds for centuries. Held at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, the exhibition Intuition brings together historic, modern, and contemporary artworks related to dreams, meditation, telepathy, creative power, and inspiration. Spanning diverse geographies and cultures, it explores how intuition has shaped our collective understanding of art for generations and provokes questions about the origins of creation, which is constantly evolving. Therefore, this ambitious project is necessarily to be seen as a work in progress, with leading contemporary artists creating a dialogue with historic works staged within the unique character of Mariano Fortuny's former home.
