"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."
"One of the reasons the exhibition, Constructing History: A Requiem to Mark the Moment (2008), came about was in actually dealing with the issue of appropriation. I didn’t want to have to appropriate anybody’s material; I just wanted to revisit this history."
