"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."
"I’m interested in abstract expressionism. Through my life, that’s been kind of taboo. Abstract expressionism has been debunked and sneered at- the idea that expressing oneself is interesting to anybody else has been laughed at. And I understand the reasons for that but I think, nevertheless, that each one of us has personal reasons for making things and that the work wouldn’t be interesting or powerful if we didn’t. Each one of us is a subject, a person."
