"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"The role of the artist has been overrated. It should be more humble. It has to be a collective effort at every level, because—especially for me, coming from the Third World—I cannot simply use somebody else’s labor. That would destroy the sense of the piece if I were working from that perspective. No. We are all trying to understand something."
