   schema:description "Through a unique blend of art, film and architecture, "The surreal house" presents the individual dwelling as a place of mystery and wonder. Fusing house and dream, it probes the relationship between interior and shell, object and space; and it elaborates the marvellous and compulsive beauty as espoused by André Breton. The haunted house, the cabinet of curiosities, the ruined castle, the cage, the cave, the labyrinth, the bell jar and the womb are among the uniquely surreal habitats explored. Shaped by the irrational and the subversive, the flip side of the modernist paradigm of the functional, rational dwelling, "The surreal house" is ripe for discovery. Mirroring the surrealist love of poetic juxtaposition, the project brings together works by artists such as Edward Hopper, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio de Chirico, Man Ray, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Joseph Cornell and Salvador Dalí.
