Intoxicated by the promise of a promotion, Charles Singular for once allows himself a small extravagance: he buys a bowler hat. But there s a problem: this is no ordinary hat.
This particular chapeau melon once belonged to the surrealist painter René Magritte, and by donning it Charles has unwittingly stepped into the artist’s unbridle, off-kilter world.
What’s more, he can’t escape at least, not until he has illuminated the secrets behind Magritte’s work.
What follows is a hallucinatory journey through Magritte’s imaginative landscape, a place where facial features mutate, the crescent moon appears in unexpected places and answers prove frustratingly elusive.
In Magritte: This is not a Biography, Vincent Zabus and Thomas Campi have created a panoramic and revealing portrait of the great Surrealist, employing a playfulness and wit reminiscent of Magritte himself.
