    Objects with Soul: Brâncuși
    Simplicity is not an objective in art, but one achieves simplicity despite one's self by entering into the real sense of things. - Constantin Brancusi.


    Brancusi

    Yesterday i visited the Atelier of Brancusi located in immediate vicinity of Centre Pompidou in Paris. He wished, to have his atelier rebuilt as accurate as possible with all the sculptures which exist within it, at the time of his death, if possible inside Musée D'art Moderne.

    The space where it is now is maybe better. It has a transparent roof which allows natural light to pass and the glass walls to offer a complete view from all sides.

    I tried to imagine him, an old man with white beard and moustache, wearing his white salopete and his cap, in the atelier working on the sculptures. It didn't work. Even if the tools were in their place, the table, and his chair, the blocks of marble ready to be chopped it was something that was sabotaging my exercise of imagination.

    His sculptures. They stand out within the simplicity of his atelier like relics from another world. The exquisite beauty crack your understanding of physical reality. When you look at them a sudden thought goes trough your mind: "they do not belong to this word". - The object presented in front of me absorb by attention. I see a duck and i think, oh yes I know, this is a duck; and stop this mental thread. The opposite happens once you look at his sculptures. Your mind gets more inquiring and notices certain details in the lines, in the reflections that overwhelm you with a pleasant feeling, you begin to see,... to see something amazing: objects with soul.
