"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"My way of thinking is Cartesian, coming from my French education. I’m very logical. To make sense of a certain reality or situation is an essential part of my work. I could say that everything I know about art, I learned as an architect. As an architect, I give myself a program, taking into account a specific space. Space is not just physical. It’s also social, cultural, political. Studying the space, I try to reach what we call the essence of the space. Then I combine that with the essence of what I am trying to say. All these elements are incorporated in the program, in which I have an objective."
