monsieur rené magritte, interview

via thenearsightedmonkey

Beinvenue yourself on down the rickety stairs to the Near Sighted Monkey Lounge where we are watching a film interview in French. It doesn’t matter if you understand it or not because no matter what it sounds good playing in the background and it features Monsieur Magritte speaking about mystery:

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present.”
