O grotesco na arte



(quadro de Shi Chong, "Woman", s/d)

"Time and again, we are confronted with images which defy our aesthetic conventions, and are therefore relegated to the shadowy realm of the grotesque. We never succeed in defining the grotesque with any degree of certainty, but merely categorize those works which stimulate certain emotional reactions as grotesque, absurd, abnormal, et cetera. Indeed, the nature of the concept is such that any attempt to establish its contours with the rational faculties is doomed to failure" (1)
