THE SEWING MACHINES
J.M. Bouhours says:
"With Arman, the object has its own strength in the sense that it is multiple.
The multiplicity is not finally a simple repetition, it has in itself a dimension, it has a value in itself.
These objects are objects that have had a life and that, in a certain way, are in a second life, in a death which is a second life.
There is really a metaphor of the life and death and resurrection itself of the object. "
