"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"The work was an attempt to try to gather elements that were vanishing—that have been abandoned—and then create a site for it. As an artist I’m always moving myself continuously. I don’t have a center. I assume the center of other people, moving from one condition to another, the condition of the slave or the condition of the immigrant."
