"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."
"The number 12 is the upside-down hanging man. He's hanging by one leg and he has his legs crossed at the knee. It's a contemplative position...it's and in-between moment of waiting for some spiritual things to come. It's not bondage in the way that someone else binds you. It's self-enforced, and it's not unpleasant. It's sort of a waiting moment. He has this little smile on his face."
