‘I would like to get rid of illusions. What fascinates me is to try to get closer to the real, but we don´t know anything. And today, I live between the boredom and the shame of belonging to an animal species such as the human being. That is why I would like to be an elephant, but a savage one, to not let anyone step on me: although the torture continues within the little freedom that I conquered’.

Leonora Carrington
