Description

Top Ten Audience Favourite, Hot Docs 2013  

"A work of art." – Toronto Star

Cinematically gorgeous and beautifully crafted, Spring & Arnaud is a breathtakingly tender and intelligent love story about acclaimed Canadian artists Spring Hurlbut and Arnaud Maggs. Spring’s art focuses on mortality and the traces 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, winner of the Scotiabank Photography and Governor General’s awards, remains fascinated by systems of identification, of repetition and the miniscule differences and similarities in collections of people, objects and ephemera while recognizing the authority of photography to express these ideas in massive installations. Whether singing “It’s only a paper moon” together as dusk falls on the French countryside or talking about the process of making art in their Toronto studios, their undying love for each other as they face the reality of Arnaud’s illness literally lights up the screen.
