"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."
"’Borrowing Your Enemy’s Arrows’ uses three thousand arrows on a boat that’s hanging. I’ve used the image of the arrow quite a lot. And I also like to hang things up. Perhaps it’s the physical response one has with an object that’s been pierced through- and then also to the change of gravity when you lift things off the ground."
