on multiples

These images of of Priscilla Mouritzen's ceramics
over on aapc reminded me of this quote
from good old Eva, a remark that is not always true,
but sometimes really is, as in the case of Priscilla.

Cindy Nemser to Eva Hesse: Why do you repeat a form over and over?

Eva Hesse: Because it exaggerates. If something is meaningful,
maybe it is more meaningful said ten times.
It's not just an aesthetic choice. If something
is absurd, it's much more greatly exaggerated,
absurd, if it is repeated.
