"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."
"There was a period of time when I just had to get off the wall. I just couldn’t take it. I just didn’t want to make one more 16x 20 black-and-white photograph that was matted with the black frame around it. I started printing on cloth—on sheer, diaphanous cloth—and hanging those. There’d be rows and rows and rows of cloth with images printed on them, hanging in the gallery space."
