"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."
"I was invited to see what would make sense to put in the middle of an abandoned church in Austria. And Henri Cole’s poem, 'To the 43rd President,' burned into a tree seemed right at the time. I’m reluctant to characterize someone else’s poem, but it seemed something between a prayer and a reproach."
- Jenny Holzer
