"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"Last year I went to see Bill T. Jones evening of dance, and one of his dances used a song about King Kong. It was just about King Kong looking for the woman, getting the woman, and all his tribulations. It was really sort of moving. But then I thought, King Kong and the woman are sort of the same size in real life. I thought of making a life-size sculpture, and then I thought that was too ambitious. But I made the sculpture of King Kong and the woman together."
