Loco Maricon Amor
Loco Maricon Amor pays tribute to two of art’s great outsiders who fought to express through their work a freedom that was never theirs.
“The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.” – Salvador Dalí
When Federico Garcia Lorca and a young Salvador Dali crossed paths their lives were inexplicably set alight. Together these art-radicals drew each other into a world rotating on a razor-point of art, passion and revolution. This is a queer-as-fuck head-trip into forbidden love and fantasy where nothing might be real but everything beats with unbridled desire and drips in technicolour.
originally produced with and presented at !Metro Arts with support of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts Fresh Ground Program and PowerArts.
