Spring & Arnaud
65 MIN / Canada
DIR: Katherine Knight & Marcia Connolly
A tender and intelligent love story about acclaimed Canadian artists Spring Hurlbut and Arnaud Maggs. Spring's art focuses on mortality and the traces of what we leave behind: ashes, bones, preserved animals, old metal cribs that invoke the spirits of the deceased in her photography, video, sculpture and installations. Arnaud Maggs remains fascinated by systems of identification, repetition and the minuscule differences and similarities in collections of people, objects and ephemera while recognizing the authority of photography to express these ideas in massive installations. Their undying love for each other lights up the screen as they face the reality of Arnaud's age and impending illness. |
