"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."
"My work is strongly visual. I’m not a conceptual artist who is only interested in the idea. It’s really rooted in the visual. That’s where I get excited. But I have a great need for structure in a conceptual thread- perhaps throughout the works in a project- almost like a matrix more than a structure. Things build on one another in an installation. There’s a basic matrix that they fit within and it’s not something I draw up. It’s a schema- another word might be ‘theme'."
