"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."
"Romance? It’s just low grade. If left to my devices, it’s not so great. There are a lot of things which are determined by a kind of romantic impulse, but I try to squelch it. The work is a kind of system. Sometimes I do this canceling thing: if it gets too ‘one thing’, I will try to overlay it with another so it doesn’t get too literal, too poetic, too tough, too anything, too red. Cancel it with a little bit of green or get a vibration."
