Quotes

Interviewer: Do you enjoy the process of making?
Anselm Kiefer: Umm... it's difficult. And sometimes it's a failure. Because, at any state of a painting, you have one-hundred possibilities... and you have to chose one. It's a war in your head, you know? And when I look two or three days later - I think it's shit. It happens, you know? Because you are in a certain situation, you think - 'Oh, now I got something.'

Strange environments
8 December 2017 | by rumblechrisSee all my reviews

Deeply meditative film, by which I don't mean boring. It's a film that demands a lot of concentration. Aselm Kiefer is a German artist working in France. The film is quite simple in trying to show and not tell us how Kiefer works and the strange artworks he produces in what looks like an abandoned village. Are they really artworks? Some of the things he makes are difficult to categorize. Sculptures that look like piles of rubble, because they are. Or are they? Does the artist's involvement make them other? Reminded me of Tarkovsky at times with all the underground scenes of strange environments.
