"Michael Snow said the artist must be exemplary, and I have always remembered that. There’s also the Sam Goldwyn line that says IM POSSIBLE. So the artist’s aspiration to be exemplary gets countered by the reality of the impossible. But I listen to Erik Satie very softly. And I would like, always, to have something very beautiful around me. That would be ideal."
- Arnaud Maggs, in conversation with Robert Enright, Border Crossings 2012

Quote
"What then is truth? A mobile army of metaphors, metonyms, and anthropomorphisms - in short, a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed, and embellished poetically and rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical, and obligatory to a people: truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that is what they are."

— Nietzsche, On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense

diptych of Arnaud Maggs by photographer Jim Allen. 
I’m currently writing a paper about the function of memory within Maggs’ later, “archival” work. A short essay-writing break resulted in my discovery of these images. Love this artist and love these photographs of him.
