"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"All the videos we have done have a very strong sculptural presence. The trumpet in the muffler is sculptural. A table upside-down is sculptural. All of these function as sculptures, only they don’t make sense in the gallery. It doesn’t make sense to put the moped with the trumpet in the muffler in the gallery. Its meaning is more important, or it’s more meaningful, functioning in the world, and then it gets brought back to the gallery not as documentation but as a way to show how it functions in a very particular moment in time."
