Frida Khalo painted in her own way and without preconceived ideas. Driven by her strong personality and her independent spirit, and flouting social conventions, she speaks in her paintings about her life tormented by her obsessive painful relationship with her body and about her relationship with the world. In 1953, she herself said to Time Magazine: “I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” Her idea of art was playful and unpredictable: “it’s the magical surprise of finding a lion in the wardrobe, where you were sure of finding shirts”. The Frida room is a tribute to passions, to those who face their fears bravely, and live intensely.
Colors and strength
Frida embraces you and takes you by surprise with its warm colours, with a strange object, a particular detail that you do not understand at first, but which takes you back in time, like a flashback, making you dream. Red dominates everything. It is the central theme that uninterruptedly blends the walls in the bathroom with the furnishings. The tiles around the Jacuzzi resemble a meaningless puzzle, like Frida’s complex personality, but they brighten this area of relaxation in a refreshing and festive way. Frida’s story can be found in the stories of many women, like the many open books that make up the structure at the bedhead. The words and their stories echo around the room and merge with the visitors’ stories.
All of the rooms are equipped with:
- a Jacuzzi including the option of chromotherapy and aromatherapy
