“(…) when we speak the word “life”, it must be understood we are not referring to life as we know it from the surface of fact, but to that fragile, fluctuating center which forms never reach. And if there is one hellish, truly accursed thing in our time, it is our artistic dallying with forms, instead of being like victims burnt at the stake, signaling through the flames.”

by Antonin Artaud (1938) – Copyrights Grove Press Inc. 1958, translated by Mary Caroline Richards
