"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."
"Drawings and sculpture develop over time. Sculptures go on for months. They tell different kinds of stories, so they’re not so much one moment. They’re a sequence of moments. That works better for the way I’m put together. And I love stuff . . . and I love tools. And I get to get all these things. So I’m always correcting people who say, ‘All those paintings you did. . . .’ They’re not paintings. I know that because, if you know painters, you know when you’re not one."
