Citáty Andrej Arsenijevič Tarkovskij

„Mám sklon přijímat svět emocionálně, kontemplativně. Nepřemýšlím tolik, ale kontempluji, vciťuji se. Možná, že je můj vztah ke světu spíše vztahem zvířete nebo dítěte, a ne dospělého člověka, který dokáže myslet a vyvozovat odpovědné závěry.“

—  Andrej Arsenijevič Tarkovskij

„Umělec existuje jen proto, že svět není dokonalý. Pokud by byl dokonalý a harmonický, umění by nebylo potřeba.“

„What is the essence of the director's work? We could define it as sculpting in time.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 63-4
Kontext: What is the essence of the director's work? We could define it as sculpting in time. Just as a sculptor takes a lump of marble, and, inwardly conscious of the features of his finished piece, removes everything that is not a part of it — so the film-maker, from a 'lump of time' made up of an enormous, solid cluster of living facts, cuts off and discards whatever he does not need, leaving only what is to be an element of the finished film, what will prove to be integral to the cinematic image.

„The artist is always the servant, and is perpetually trying to pay for the gift that has been given to him as if by a miracle. Modern man, however, does not want to make any sacrifice, even though true affirmation of the self can only be expressed in sacrifice.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 38
Kontext: Art is born and takes hold wherever there is a timeless and insatiable longing for the spiritual, for the ideal: that longing which draws people to art. Modern art has taken the wrong turn in abandoning the search for the meaning of existence in order to affirm the value of the individual for his own sake. What purports to be art begins to looks like an eccentric occupation for suspect characters who maintain that any personalised action is of intrinsic value simply as a display of self-will. But in an artistic creation the personality does not assert itself it serves another, higher and communal idea. The artist is always the servant, and is perpetually trying to pay for the gift that has been given to him as if by a miracle. Modern man, however, does not want to make any sacrifice, even though true affirmation of the self can only be expressed in sacrifice. We are gradually forgetting about this, and at the same time, inevitably, losing all sense of human calling.

„Art is realistic when it strives to express an ethical ideal. Realism is striving for truth, and truth is always beautiful.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 113
Kontext: Art is realistic when it strives to express an ethical ideal. Realism is striving for truth, and truth is always beautiful. Here the aesthetic coincides with the ethical.

„I had the greatest difficulty in explaining to people that there is no hidden, coded meaning in the film, nothing beyond the desire to tell the truth. Often my assurances provoked incredulity and even disappointment. Some people evidently wanted more: they needed arcane symbols, secret meanings.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 133
Kontext: [About Mirror] I had the greatest difficulty in explaining to people that there is no hidden, coded meaning in the film, nothing beyond the desire to tell the truth. Often my assurances provoked incredulity and even disappointment. Some people evidently wanted more: they needed arcane symbols, secret meanings. They were not accustomed to the poetics of the cinema image. And I was disappointed in my turn. Such was the reaction of the opposition party in the audience; as for my own colleagues, they launched a bitter attack on me, accusing me of immodesty, of wanting to make a film about myself.

„If there are some who talk the same language as myself, then why should I neglect their interests for the sake of some other group of people who are alien and remote?“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 174
Kontext: If there are some who talk the same language as myself, then why should I neglect their interests for the sake of some other group of people who are alien and remote? They have their own 'gods and idols' and we have nothing in common.... If you try to please audiences, uncritically accepting their tastes, it can only mean that you have no respect for them: that you simply want to collect their money.

„Art symbolises the meaning of our existence.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 192
Kontext: Art must must carry man's craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith. And the more hopeless the world in the artist's version, the more clearly perhaps must we see the ideal that stands in opposition — otherwise life becomes impossible! Art symbolises the meaning of our existence.

„Perhaps the meaning of all human activity lies in the artistic consciousness, in the pointless and selfless creative act?“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 241
Kontext: Perhaps the meaning of all human activity lies in the artistic consciousness, in the pointless and selfless creative act? Perhaps our capacity to create is evidence that we ourselves were created in the image and likeness of God?

„Conscience, both as a sense and as a concept, is a priori immanent in man, and shakes the very foundations of the society that has emerged from our ill-conceived civilisation.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 234
Kontext: Freedom is inseparable from conscience. And even if it is true that all the ideas developed by the social conciousness are the product of evolution, conscience at least has nothing to do with the historic process. Conscience, both as a sense and as a concept, is a priori immanent in man, and shakes the very foundations of the society that has emerged from our ill-conceived civilisation.

„I have a horror of tags and labels.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 149
Kontext: I have a horror of tags and labels. I don't understand, for instance, how people can talk about Bergman's "symbolism". Far from being symbolic, be seems to me, through and almost biological naturalism, to arrive at the spiritual truth about human life that is important to him.

„Art must must carry man's craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, kniha Sculpting in Time

Zdroj: Sculpting in Time (1986), p. 192
Kontext: Art must must carry man's craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith. And the more hopeless the world in the artist's version, the more clearly perhaps must we see the ideal that stands in opposition — otherwise life becomes impossible! Art symbolises the meaning of our existence.
