"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’s something really tough about it, and I’m happy that I was able to move across that emotional terrain and say, “If I can just finish this, if I can cap this part of my life off, I think I might be able to move forward.” And maybe we’ve all reached a kind of threshold and a new gateway to pass through."
