Catalogue of exhibition in MNCARS. Locus Solus is the first exhibition to be held in Spain on the figure and influence of Raymond Roussel (Paris, 1877 - Palermo, 1933), the author of poetic, novelistic and theatrical works without precedent in the history of literature.
First overall vision on the figure and legacy of the French writer Raymond Roussell (1877–1933) in Spain, this catalogue gathers his paradoxical universe, full of erudite references, hermetic and popular. Linked to surrealism and the historical avant-gardes he continues to be unknown, so this publication allows us to look into the keyhole of his complex and ambitious aesthetic and literary project, populated by a strange equilibrium between conceptual thoroughness and artistic/linguistic delirium, and how he has been a fundamental reference for over thirty artists and creators.
Roussel is known for both the singularity and exuberance of his narrative and visual universe and also for the complex methodology he developed and then perfected over time. This methodology was based on the exploration of the inventive potential of homonymy and word play, all from the conviction that an artistic/literary work does not need to contain anything real, that it can be exclusively a combination of imaginary objects.
