"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself.

They also talk about it being old-fashioned or obsolete, but I think it is very contemporary. It’s so unlike anything else and so removed from reality that if you use the right subject matter it can be very powerful."
