"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 moment you transgress, you caress. And the moment that you intervene to subvert the building, you erase your intervention. You don’t leave a mark behind. So it’s all about the artist trying to critique the father, or modernity, and then failing. As the actor, you’re artist, laborer, and architect. You’re the artist because you’re making the film and because sometimes, when you’re washing the windows, the camera watches your hand in a gesture, almost a painting gesture across the pane. But you’re also the laborer who, in that gesture, is just simply washing a window. It’s mundane. Then you’re outside the building tending to its form, so you’re the architect."
