Bas Jan Ader


"I want to do a piece where I go to the Alps and talk to a mountain. The mountain will talk of things which are necessary and always true, and I shall talk of things which are sometimes, accidentally true."

Bill Leavitt on Bas Jan Ader
As well as his desire for concrete truth, he had a corresponding attraction to the imperfect, the broken, the mistaken, and the misunderstood.
