"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."
"Art happens in that space between the spectator...and the work. It’s that space in between that finalizes the work of art. And in the case of the terra-cotta works, they are especially artistic- on the one hand very artistic, on the other...very hermetic."
- Gabriel Orozco
