Ernst, Max - Dark Gods and For Alice's Friends
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
My wanderings, my anxieties, my impatiences, my doubts, my beliefs, my hallucinations, my loves, my rages, my revolts, my contradictions, my refusals to submit to any discipline, even my own, the sporadic visits of Perturbation, My Sister, The Hundred-Headless Woman, none of these have succeeded in creating a climate favourable to the working out of a calm, serene body of work.
Like my behaviour, my work is not harmonious in the sense of the classical composers, or even of the classical revolutionaries.
Seditious, uneven, contradictory, it is unacceptable for specialists in art, in culture, in behaviour, in morals.
It has the power, on the other hand, to enchant my accomplices, the poets, the paraphysicians, some illiterates - Max Ernst, 1959.
