The idea of the exhibition “Hysterical Fantasy” was born during the last year of Dennis Oppenheim’s life and developed in several discussions and exchanges between the artist and the curator Lorand Hegyi, in his studio in the Franklin Street in Tribeca as well, as in Catanzaro and in Saint-Etienne.In these empathic conversations Dennis Oppenheim repeatedly spoke about the spontaneous and subconscious, irrational and uncontrollable, hysterical and chaotic determinations of our actions and attitudes what he wanted to show in his work. In one of his brilliant essays he tried to reveal his deepest motivation in the working process and found it in the irresistible desire of an “almost shamanistic immersion into self-darkness”.
